Enoch Bolles

I've been really into illustrators as of late, and along side John Willie and Alberto Varga, another artist I have always been drawn to~ but never knew who he was~ is Enoch Bolles. Bolles was an American illustrator who was best known for his collaborations with Film Fun magazine. There is something so fluffy and feminine about his pinups. Although not as sharp looking as a Varga Girl image, there is a delicate haze, a water color feeling that imbues his work with a timeless glamour.

Imagine my excitement and surprise to find a whole site dedicated to his art! This is a detailed and well researched blog that showcases his history, illustrations, inspirations and much more. Please visit Enoch Bolles for information on the artist and his work!












Does anyone else love a monkey in a top hat as much as I do?

I love your blog too! You might want to check mine out at some point - I feature a lot of pulp fiction stories and covers from the 1930s and 40s, and a lot of pulp fiction enthusiasts are commentors. I also recently interviewed David Saunders, son of Norman Saunders the great pulp and paperback artist. Anyway, I'm glad I found you - you're going on my list!
