How about some marvelous monsters and other strange goodies? Today I bring you the captivating creatures of Juan Jose Surace.

At least on my computer screen, these are showing up very small, so definitely click to enlarge. You don’t want to miss the details of these…aquatic bereaved.

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?

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.”

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

The old one was no fun at all…

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