Perilous Illustrations by Mort Künstler

Eeee-YOW! This pair of hair-raising paintings by Mort Kunstler really pack a wallop. These two guys—or perhaps the same unlucky guy—are about to become fish food for some monstrous creatures in these fantastic illustrations for a 1950s pulp magazine.

As a young freelance artist, Kunstler created "way out" scenarios for men's adventure magazines, paperbacks, model kit packaging, and even Mad magazine. Spectacular stuff!
