    American Pulp Artists

    Here's a neat website and great time waster that has the bios and art examples of some of the most popular artists of the American Pulp Magazines....

    Here's what the website has to say about Norman Saunders

    Thank you for the link. Since longest time I'm a fan of this sort.

    Interestingly, advertising illustration was never considered to be art, but worked ( commercially ) better than Mona Lisa.

    Ah! You discovered The Missing Link!!!!!!!!!!!

    One of my very favorite genres in illustration. Too bad I was born a little too late for this kind of thing to be a viable way to make a living. With the Internet, all this history is sort of floating to the surface. It's awesome.

    I did have one class quite a while ago that was taught by one of the old paperback illustrators. I would have preferred to dispense altogether with the rest of my education and just studied with him, but I had already been in the business for some time before finding him. I learned more in that one class about painting humans realistically than I can tell you.

    With the pulp artists (that I saw on this link) slightly ahead of the paperback cover artists, I suppose it's a bit like the incongruity of having a great reverence for Vaudeville. But I don't care. I love the art in The Pulps.

    Thanks again for the link. Lots of stuff I never had seen before.
