Celebrating Illustration, Design, Cartoon and Comic Art of the Mid-20th Century

Two More from '54

Thursday, August 31, 2006

Another great composition, beautifully realized, by Joe Bowler. But wait - where's the gun? Oh yeah - there it is, pointed down and away at the edge of the frame! In spite of my (minor, facetious) criticism, I am constantly wowed by Bowler's fabulous illustrative skills. It's not easy making a green hue work on skintone, but it adds an effective air of tension and dread to this second piece.

* Don't forget, you can see all of this week's scans at full size in my Joe Bowler Flickr set.

  1. Love the dynamic composition of the top piece. A real 'eye grabber'.
