Ladies worthy of a double take. That fits both the visual and written content of the site well. Many of the women featured on it are certainly beautiful, partly because colored pencil painting portraits pdf are current or former actresses or models. But they are also worth a double take because they tend to be intriguing people, as you find out of you read the interviews, profiles and articles on Idol Features.

Some of the ladies are indie TV, movie or online media producers. Others are Cosplay stars, musicians, and artists. I was also impressed by the writers for the site and the quality of their interviews and articles. For example, Chris Charles is himself a veteran writer for various media outlets.

He has done interviews with scores of women from the entertainment industry that are posted on the site. One of his latest is an interview with the three lead actresses in the gonzo science fiction comedy SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE, Alyss Winkler, Ellie Church and Allison Maier. Chris has also written many cool articles for the site, such as his series featuring 20 actresses who were victims in movies in the FRIDAY THE 13th series. Although I didn’t know about her until I read that interview, I did know something about Arfon. Wales whose work has appeared in many books, comics, magazines, and elsewhere. Loren is a leading authority on cryptozoology lore, the author of many of the best books about legendary cryptid creatures, and Founder of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine. He was greatly helpful to us when we were creating our book collecting men’s adventure magazine stories and artwork about Bigfoot, Sasquatch and other legendary monsters, the CRYPTOZOOLOGY ANTHOLOGY.

My fellow Loren Coleman fan Arfon drew a terrific portrait of Loren that I’d seen many times, since it served as Loren’s profile pic on Twitter and Facebook for quite a while. You can see a scan of it on Arfon’s blog. Rock Baker, who has worked for AC Comics, Main Enterprises, and Moonstone among others. Seeing that I’d be in good company as a contributor and that Idol Features is nicely-designed, tasteful and interesting — not some type of porn site — I told Charles I’d be happy to do some guest posts there. I started with one about my own favorite men’s magazine model and actress Eva Lynd, who I’ve written about on this blog many times.

It’s an overview profile piece about Eva that mentions and shows some of the classic pinup photos she modeled for. Naturally, it also notes and shows some of the men’s adventure magazine cover and interior artwork she modeled for, done by top MAM artists Norm Eastman and Al Rossi.

You’ll probably know some of the ladies featured and find many you didn’t know to be quite intriguing. You can also follow the site and see additional posts on the Idol Features Facebook page. Thanks to Chris Charles for ushering me and Eva Lynd into the Idol Features family! Books Facebook Group and post them there.

All rights reserved to original commentary on this men’s adventure magazine blog site. I first talked to Gil years ago, in an interview I did with him years ago about his men’s adventure magazine work. In that interview, he told me he sold almost all of his original MAM artwork in the 1970s. However, I found out recently that he had stored away about 60 of his favorites at his home in Buck’s County, Pennsylvania. Now, at age 86, Gil is ready to sell his remaining Mack Bolan treasures. I learned that from a notice placed in the great, long-running fanzine Paperback Parade by Gil’s representative Rich Greene, who does the Paperback Parade layouts. Most of the Executioner cover paintings shown in this post and Part 1 of my interview with Gil are for sale.

He’s also willing to offers lay-away payments over time as an option. BOB DEIS:  After you mentioned that it was Charles Kadin, the Art Director for the Harlequin Gold Eagle books, who asked you to do the cover paintings for Executioner series in 1981, I Googled Kadin’s name. I found out he was also an artist who specialized in military aviation art. I first met him at that weird meeting I told you about, after he contacted me about doing the Executioner covers. I was surprised that he did. But the rest, as I’ve said, is history.

During the years I was doing them, Charles and I sometimes got together in New York when I was doing reference photos shoots for my Mack Bolan cover art. Later, we both belonged to the Society of Illustrators in New York. We both joined the Air Force Art program. I think that was after I finished doing the Mack Bolan series. Charles did good artwork and I told him so.
