Been having a lot of fun with these ‘Western Movie Stars’ illustrations that I’ve been doing the past few weeks. I was due for another ‘Leading Lady’ today, and, went with a personal favorite of mine (though maybe a little obscure to some), Marie Windsor, who was most famous for being Elijah Cook Jr.’s scheming wife in Stanley Kubrick’s film ‘The Killing’, but who also did a fair share of work in the western genre, co-starring with Randolph Scott a few times, and doing plenty of B-Westerns and Western TV Show appearances. Thanks to theispot.com for picking up several of these illustrations for their news feed yesterday. I’m going to begin shopping this project around for a publisher this weekend, now that I’ve got a good representative sampling of the project.
Today’s installment in the ‘Western Stars’ series of illustrations I’ve been doing the past few weeks. Character actor Jack Elam, and I was inspired to do a color version of this one today. Now that I have ten of these completed, I may start shopping this project around, to see if I can find a publisher.
Another in my ‘Western Movie Heroes’ series. I’ve broken this into three categories: Male Movie Stars, Character Actors/Bad Guys & Leading Ladies. This is Vera Miles, from such films as ‘The Searchers’ and ‘The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance’. If I can’t find a publisher for this coloring book, I may look into self publishing.
