Just a Little Pulp Art for Your Sunday

Posted in art, comics, horror, retro, sci-fi, vintage with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve always wanted to post a bunch of great pulp art here, but it’s an overwhelming thought since my pulp archives contain thousands of images. How does one even choose?

Well, another blog I follow recently posted a bunch of images (some of which I had, some not), so here are a few choice cuts!

When I first saw some of these, I thought they were paintings. He can achieve an incredible sense of movement and weightlessness.

Doesn’t this look like it’s floating?

And here we have a cartoonishly gaunt fellow with bats in flight.

Everyone should know this.

Ah, refreshing summer treats.

Gorgeous!

This looks like an awesome model kit.

I love this painting. Such a sense of longing.

I left the trademark that says “for personal purposes only,” because I imagine all of us have ultra-cute kitten purposes.

On the other hand, I see no earthly purpose for this:

So…extra crotch room for Chuck Norris style kicks was a selling point?

A turtle skeleton, just because.

Matt Gordon paints adorable little monsters and skeletons…

In his hands, these “scary” creatures become innocent, playful, affectionate, reflective characters with real feelings. Gotta love a skeleton…in a skeleton onesie. Very nice touch.

Let’s take a moment to ogle the beauty of nature…

For some reason, people feel slightly uneasy in this chair.

A tad crass…but definitely my favorite faux Rand McNally cover:

Couldn’t they have thought of more appetizing adjectives than “semi-liquids?” I suppose it beats “lumpy, congealed and vomitous.”

Dana, Don’t make a joke about this car being cheesy…Don’t make a joke about this car being cheesy…Resist!

Did anyone have this as a kid? It looks awesome.

A children’s book illustration. I’m sure no one had nightmares or anything.

David Chung (aka “The Chung”) paints a rainbow menagerie of monsters and lovable outcasts.

These colorful creatures, while undeniably hinting at the fact that we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously, actually express a range of human emotions.

Ah, it’s like the darker side of Lisa Frank characters.
