Postcards

Above, left to right: Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, and R. Crumb.In March of 2019 I started sketching free hand on 4 x 6 postcards. I often draw them in bed. Playing with postcards helps me to draw fast and loose and hopefully achieve some cartoony likenesses. I generally draw in series, such as American Literary History, Jazz performers, or The Mexican Revolution. Below, left to right: Venustiano Carranza, Woman with a rifle (after a Casasola photograph), and Emiliano Zapata.

 

First Gallery Post

With this post, I inaugurate the blog feature of my site, which I plan to use to post items from my collection of vintage comics, magazines, pulps, and movie posters.

Here’s a 1941 Spanish pulp by Hugo Conway (Frederik John Fargus, known in English as “Hugh” Conway, 1847-1885). Cover art by the Spanish illustrator and comic book artist Emilio Freixas (1899-1976).
