MORT KÜNSTLER, ADVENTURE ARTIST

You've probably already seen the artworks of Mort Künstler, because they are everywhere: the covers of Men's Pulp Adventure Magazines in the 50's and 60's, box art for model kits, movie posters, and even the back covers of Mad magazine. Mort paints adventures the way we imagine they should be: large beasts, savage natives, ancient treasures, angry soldiers, and topless women.

• A nice archive of Künstler's magazine work at the American Art Archives.

• A few of Künstler's awesome underwater action scenes.
