East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Glen Orbik

I just found out about the passing of American artist Glen Orbik, one of the giants in pulp-style illustration of the age.
I discovered his work through the covers of the Hard Case Crime paperbacks, and was love at first sight.
His paintings summed up everything I love about the genre.
He was 52.
