Frank McCarthy

Certain top illustrators have become identified with a specific genre they illustrated extensively: Robert McCall for his jets and spaceships, Coby Whitmore for his gorgeous women and their rakish suitors, and for Frank McCarthy, it would have to be his beautifully realized Western scenes, like the one you see above.

But recently I discovered that McCarthy did some excellent work for Collier's in other genres during the early to mid-50's.

This week we'll take a look at some of that other work by illustrator Frank McCarthy.


  1. Truly awesome......I am a sucker for red!

  2. Incredible piece! I'm looking forward to this week! Most people only know his James Bond poster work. I can't wait to see what your going to pull out!

  3. These are wonderful. Bring 'em on.
