While he was in Europe he came upon the French magazine La Vie Parisienne , with a cover by Raphael Kirchner , which he said was a great influence on his work. His early career in New York included work as an artist for the Ziegfeld Follies and for many Hollywood studios.

Vargas' most famous piece of film work was for the poster of the film The Sin of Nora Moran , which shows a near-naked Zita Johann in a pose of desperation.
