Hope everyones holidays are going well.
So in the spirit of the season I thought I would share my collection of Dean Cornwell illustrations.
If you head over to my blog ( www.francisvallejo.blogspot.com or click below) , you can click a link to download 118 Cornwell illustrations. Earlier this year I apprehended a flat file full of Cornwell original magazine clippings, which I then
Hey guys, you're too kind. Glad that you are enjoying the download!!!
Cornwell is one of my favorites. Now if only someone could put up a collection of Mead Schaeffer...???? **hint hint**
But I do have all of these in their 300 dpi glory. I barely managed to drop the smaller set into onto my server before I hopped on a plane. Like a few folks mentioned, when I get back I'll put up a link to download the hi-res imagery. It's going to be a humongously epic file, over 1 gig, but I should be able to do it..haha.
Here's some Schaeffers...(first 4 pix) followed by some Saul Teppers (next 6) and Dan Contents (2) and a Loomis... Schaeffer, Tepper and Content were acolytes of Cornwell's and are often indistinguishable from him during the 1930s. Sundblom and Pruett Carter and Charles S. Chapman also fit in to that general aesthetic, though slightly less influeced by Cornwell's chunkiness.
Btw, in the 1940s Schaeffer's style changed away from Cornwell's influence with the waning of Depression era romanticism and the rise in reputation of social realist guys like Steve Dohanos, Andrew Wyeth, and Grant Wood (if you can call Wyeth social realist).
