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.
