Illostribute, tribute to Norman Saunders

Freddy Boo illustration for illostribute, Norman Saunders master of pulp fiction

This months tribute is to Norman Saunders, a prolific 
commercial artist renowned for his pulp fiction illustration 
covers of the 1930's - 40's. As commercial demands changed 
he adapted his talents to painting comic books, paperback covers, 
men's adventure magazines and bubble gum trading cards.

His pulp fiction covers are very intense usually centered around 

a female in perilous danger. I interpreted a slightly somber cover 
with the heroine taking the shots, literally.
