I love this one, Greg Hildebrandt´s American Beauties 2017 Calendar. The guy is obviously a great artist.

Top notch.



I really like the Rodney Matthews 2017 Calendar. I can see some wonderful art that I recall from some Classic Rock albums of the past.



Word has reached me today that artist Jack Davis passed away on July 24. He was 91. I grew up with his cartoons, all the great MAD covers etc. I mean, the guy was way up there. Seen here is MAD (issue) 169, published in September 1974. Classic stuff.

He will not be forgotten.


Another “Sex And Horror” title, this one titled “The Art of Alessandro Biffignandi” (Korero Press, 2016). Italian Pulp master Biffignandi clearly deserves a book and here it is. This is all new stuff to me but I am more than impressed. I would have bought all these magazines if they had existed over here back in the day. 162 pages.

Seriously badass.


Spotted this wonderful drawing of Deep Purple MK4 (Ian Paice, Tommy Bolin, Jon Lord, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes). Not sure who the artist is but whoever you are you are really good. I just wanted to say that.



Got this in the mail today, UK publication Record Collector (issue) 457. Bought this for the Rodney Matthews cover. Good interview with the man. Also, nice feature on UFO.



Got this book in the mail today, “Sex and Horror – The Art of Emanuele Taglietti” (Korero Press, 2015). Pulp master Taglietti was the king of his craft in Italy in the 1970s and 1980s and in this 162 page paperback you get to see some of his best art.

Got to love this.
