Lillian Chestney (22 September 1913 – 6 August 2000, USA) was one of the female artists who worked for the famous Classics Illustrated series by Gilberton Publishing. Her luscious style lent itself perfectly for the rendering of the comic book adaptations of the 'Arabian Nights' tales (#8) and Jonathan Swift's first 'Gulliver's Travels' story (#16) in 1943. The artist had studied at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students League in New York City.

Chestney continued to work as an illustrator throughout the 1940s and 1950s. She later drew advertisements for cookbooks and music books, as well as covers for paperback romance novels. She drew mostly for children's books however, and she also drew for magazines like McCall's, The Saturday Evening Post and Collier's. She was married to artist Stanley Maxwell.
