I don't normally show complete finished book art before the book is released but I'm making an exception in this case as I want to show you the whole progression from concept to final. This is the finished piece, approx. 14" x 17", pen and ink. It's called, "Lucy's Dream" and it is the endpiece of the new book. ANCHOR is my first book with both a frontispiece and an endpiece. The frontispiece is in scratchboard, the only scratchboard piece in the book. I'll be posting more information soon about the book, sample chapters and the like, as well as links for purchasing copy. So much work goes into something like this, more than money can ever compensate you for. Creativity and sharing dreams is its own reward, however, and that is priceless. 🎆🎆🎆💕💕💕📝📝📝😍😍😍🌠🌠 #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #independentartist #illustration #bookillustration #bookillustrator #pulpartist #pulpauthor #pulpillustrator #independentcreative #inktober #inktober2018 #penandinkdrawing

I had to shift gears from inktober to work on a bigger project but I’m really excited about it and how the painting is turning out so far. It is SO nice to paint something on a larger scale. It’s been so long!

When all else fails...redraw. ANCHOR promo piece WIP. NOW I'm ready for final inking. #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #illustration #pulpartist #independentartist #independentauthor #wip #marlowthomashair
Today's installment of my book illustration's evolving process. This is the ink rough, a roadmap to the values of the final piece. This drawing has too many structural flaws to be final anything (and this can be quite frustrating at this stage when you must accept them and move forward regardless.) When I do the final drawing I will correct the anatomical issues in the faces which will make inking the shadows much easier, actually. Interesting spontaneous things occurred with this piece. For example, the bird shape in the background was put in completely subconsciously, but suits the story very well. #inktober2018 #inktober #illustration #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #pulpartist #bookillustrator #independentartist #penandinkart #penandinkdrawing
Just finished this pulp painting. Oil on canvas. #hepcattattoos #femmefatale #oilpainting #pulpart #pulpartist #
Anchor design sketch for promo piece, take 2. This one has a much better layout and is more interesting conceptually. Pulp illustrations are grandest when their ideas are conceptual. That is true for other kinds of illustrations too, of course. But there was something way-out-there about pulp art. People still love that about it and I'm doing my damnedest to learn how to do it. It's fun! Creativity is the most awesome fun of all. 😊😊🎆🌠🖍🖋📝🖊 #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #bookartist #pulpartist #independentartist #independentauthor
“Lakeside, 1939” those are the words scrawled in thin cursive on the back of the photo you found tucked between the pages of an old book. I wonder if they were celebrating a holiday, or maybe went down to the lake for the day. Either way, they look like they had a great time❣️ The original and prints of this painting are available now in my Etsy shop! With free shipping! Link in the bio to shop!

Saturday Night Scares · 10 x 10 in digital, 2018. · This guy went through a few stages of transformation while I mashed him up into some hellish concoction. I was aiming for an image that might feel at home on a 70s Italian grindhouse flick poster, while trying to put my own spin on things at the same time. · As always, I'm trying to convey mood through lighting and colour; lively mark-making and texture continue to become more and more central to the way I work. Tino Avelli was at the back of my mind the whole time. · #pulp #pulpfiction #retro #horror #horrorpulp #classichorror #oldschoolhorror #horrorart #horrorillustration #horrorgram #grindhouse #pulpartist #horrorartist #illustration #digitalart #digitalillustration #digitalpainting #photoshoppainting
The cover painting for my new illustrated #scifi #pulp story, "Anchor" is about 3/4 completed. I am now working out the rest of the cover layout. Here are two of my inspirations from the 1930's and 40's. Gorgeous pulp cover art on both of them, don't you think? With any luck, mine will, at least, be in the same artistic ballpark, quality-wise. 😎 #pulpillustrator #pulpcovers #astoundingstories #shortstories #newpulp #oldpulp #ilustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #painter #caseinpainters #bookillustrator #bookillustrators #pulpartist #independentartist #independentauthor #illustratedbook

Saint Elmo · 12 x 9 in digital, 2018. · My influences are starting to filter in to my work more strongly now. More pieces of the jigsaw fell into place on this one, with (hopefully) hints starting to show of the likes of Mead Schaeffer, Walter Baumhofer, Norman Saunders, Robert Maguire and Rudolph Belarski - all of which I'm studying in heavy rotation, along with many others. · I'm edging closer to being able to capture at least some of the flavour of that luscious, creamy, slippy, blobby painting technique that Mead Schaeffer did so well. I'll never get a million miles near what Schaeffer was capable of, but I can at least try. · #paintinggoals #art #artist #pulpartist #horrorartist #illustration #digitalart #digitalillustration #digitalpainting #photoshoppainting #visualarts #vintage #pulp #vintagepulp #pulpart #horrorart #horror #horrorgram #weirdart #bizarreart #vintageillustrations #noirart #noirstyle #saintelmo #saintelmosfire

A couple of new purchases. Loving this vintage style! This little 1940s hat has a swan pin with little brites and fringe. The velvet is a bit worn and needs a couple of stitches, but I can do that. I can just imagine the hairstyle that's going to go with it. 😊And the bag is just adorable, very summery. They don't really go together, but what the heck! #myvintagestyle #1950sfashion #1940sfashion #retroauthor #ladyauthor #pulpwriter #pulpillustrator #pulpartist #bookillustrator #authorsoninstagram #authorsofinstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #dressingupvintage #vintagehat #vintagebag

The last piece is finished and here's a sneak peak of the next one in progress. This will be another of the illustrations for "Anchor," my next illustrated book release. As an added plus for my ego today my illustrated novelette, "Landscape of Darkness" received another 5 star review on Amazon today. I'm humbled that people are enjoying the adventures of Captain Sam Mercury of the space patrol. And even more humbled that they'd compare my work to Edmond Hamilton's wonderful Captain Future stories. #independentartist #independentauthor #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorofinstagram #bookillustrator #pulpillustrator #pulpartist #blackandwhiteartwork #artistsoninstagram #artist #artwork 🎨 #pulpauthor #authorartist
All written! Now to send it out. The Rocketeer is the most fun I've had in a long while. Every issue is a challenge because I think of it as a mini magazine and not a "this is what I've been doing" update. I want to start a conversation about why science fiction is important and how it's changed us and we've changed it. Okay off the soapbox. The Rocketeer is free so if you want one just let me know. #independentartist #independentauthor #pulpauthor #pulpartist ##scifi #sciencefiction #magazine #fanzine #authorsoninstagram #scifiauthor #fanclub
To quote one of my favorite science fiction authors..."That's right, Murgatroyd. Here we go again!" A shout out to anyone who gets the author. 😀👍 In the meantime, I'm starting on the frontispiece for my next book, "Anchor" today. The design is exciting and I can't wait to see what happens in the final piece.

Today I started on the book cover for my next illustrated story, "Anchor." This is one of the color tests in casein. The old leather journal is an important part of the story and the astrolabe is significant to the plot. #paintersofinstagram #painter #casein #watermedia #bookcover #bookcoverartist #pulpartist #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrator #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #artista #artistatwork
Still working on Finlay's technique. This one is a straight pen & ink.

Here's the latest progress on the Virgil Finlay copy in Scratchboard. It's slow and careful going as he was VERY good.

Getting my scratchboard chops back by making a copy of an illustration by pulp art master - Virgil Finlay. Step one is to lay down a solid layer of black with India ink. I do things old school and start with a white board and preserve the large white areas. #scratchboardart #scratchboard #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #penandink #oldschool #pulpartist #pulpillustrator #pulpillustration #spaceopera #buckrogers #flashgordon
I'm just matting a few limited edition prints for sale at Lewis Co. Mythology event next Saturday. The artwork is a "retro-active retro illustration" for a real 1950's UFO encounter near Centralia, WA. The illustration will be used as part of a lecture during the event. So much fun to put my pulp illustration skills to work for a local event! 😊#artistsoninstagram #artist #pulpartist #illustration #illustratorsoninstagram #illustration #illustrationartists #ufosighting #venusians #alien #aliens 👽 #flyingsaucer #retro1950s #retro1940s #ufo #lewiscounty #lewiscountyhistoricalmuseum #lewiscountyhistory
Up late working on the lead illustration for my next book. Here are two books I always keep close - Loomis and Muybridge.

Titled “An Old Favorite” by Emmett Watson (1893-1955). Interesting career. By the sixth grade he was working for an engraving company that produced advertising. Then as a cartographer during WW1. After the war, in NYC he was painting covers for slick magazines, The Saturday Evening Post and Progressive Farmer. Also worked freelance for pulp magazines such as Detective Fiction Weekly and Argosy. #emmettwatson #visualartist #landscape #wildlife #calendarart #advertising #magazine #pulpartist #slickmagazine #pulpmagazine #personalfavorite
I can finally share my painting of Fox Mulder! Im so excited with how this came out, with the limited colorized photo look.

Dangerously close to finishing up Spooky Mulder! I am really enjoying this limited color pallet I am experimenting with here. The plan is to already do a similar one for my next painting of Scully but I have a feeling I am going to be exploring this a lot more in the future ❣️ In the meantime, don’t forget about my etsy store! I have tons of prints and some originals for sale ✨

In my bathroom I have a few dozen vintage physique & sci-fi men’s pulp magazines from the 50’s & 60’s framed on the walls. #AmericanManhood & Mr. America were two of the #gaynotgay magazines of the period. I recently discovered one of the artists had roots in interior design. 💪🏽 Artist #PeterPoulton was one of many who entered the science fiction field during the boom years of the early 1950s and he was one of the best. Little is known about Poulton’s formal education or career. He apparently had only one year of college before enlisting in the Army in 1942. By that time he was living in California, although after the war he lived and worked in New York City. His father, Elmer Antone Poulton, was a painter who worked as an interior decorator in Barnesville for many years, and was recognized as a master craftsman; it is possible Poulton learned his skills from him. Poulton used a sharp pen-and-ink style as opposed to the many artists who worked in grease pencil or wash during the period. For shading he used detailed cross-hatching and stipple work to produce the desired effect. 🏳️‍🌈 Was he gay? I have to wonder. 👨‍🎨 #pulpartist #vintagepulps #menspulp #gayfollow #gayartist #gaykitsch #gaypulpfiction #bodybuilding #physique #gay #gaybooks #gaymurdermystery #interiordesign #BostonDesign #pulpfiction #pulp #gayscandal #gayworld #homosexuality #fagmag #1950s #mensmagazine #bathroomdecor #masculinity #masculine #masculino #masculinos
