Dean Cornwell download!
Hey folks. I just landed in Michigan a couple of hours ago. I'm inside and I still think I can see my breath, but it's great to see my family again!
In the spirit of giving I thought I would post a .zip download of 118 Dean Cornwell illustrations. From my knowledge, these can not be accessed elsewhere. These are all scans from actual magazine reproductions. I was fortunate to track down a fellow that was getting rid of a folder of all these great Cornwell illos that he clipped out of the original magazines. I've been drawing (bad pun) a ton of inspiration from these, so now hopefully everyone can too!!
In many of them, there is a blank strip in the center of them. This is because I received the originals in separate pieces so I did my best to stitch the scans back together as Cornwell would have painted it.
Up above are a few examples of the files contained in the download.
When I get back to my studio I'll elaborate on this post. I have a .zip of all the hi-res scans that I'll put up, in case anyone wants to print them out. I'd also like to compare some of the original paintings to the repros. If you really digg Cornwell's work, I suggest checking out the book "Dean Cornwell: The Dean of Illustrators, by Partricia Broder." Good book, but unfortunately much of it is in black and white!?!
