I love pulp illustrations and they have had a great influence on my own art. They have everything: excitement and action, drama and mystery, pretty girls, monsters, glamour and fantastic outfits. My favorite pulp illustrations are the ones with space and science fiction themes. I’ll feature some specific illustrators later, but in this post are all the pulp paintings where I don’t know the illustrator. There are a few movie posters in there as well that I felt fit with the theme.
If you recognise the illustrator of any of these, please leave a comment!
I love this one, but I’m partial to mermaids.
This title is so funny. Lars is a very Swedish name which makes the combination especially funny to a Swede.
One of my favourites. Those tube ladies are so dreamy.
My all time favourite pulp cover. I love the girl and the rose monster. Reminds me a bit of Biollante.
Exotic imagery and giant snakes, two of my favourite things!
This girl is so cool with her phone and her outfit.
This one is special since it’s no illustration but a posed photo.
