Princess with a Puma

If I wasn't always scrambling to make a living, always facing deadlines, I'd have more images to any given post. As it is, I'm lucky to have time to post one image here or there, hopefully at least daily.

So here is one of my favorite 'pin-up' artists, Armando Drechsler, a German painter transplanted to Mexico in the 1920s. I've got more, but I've also got deadlines. Later.

Raise the Barr

For some reason I receive more comments emailed to me than posted to the blog, and I received a number of them requesting to see more of George Barr's illustrative work for Jack Vance's The Dying Earth, published by Underwood/Miller in 1976.

Well, OK then.
