PulpFest 2012 – The Illustrated Conan

 

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/conanartpanel.mp3

 

First installment of the celebration of Robert E. Howard’s birthmonth at Pulp Crazy.

From Pulpfest 2012 – The Illustrated Conan Panel – Jim and Ruth Keegan, along with Mark Schultz, offer a look at Conan of Cimmeria as depicted by various illustrators over the last eight decades and offer a modern perspective on illustrating Robert E. Howard’s immortal character.

True to the theme of the panel, there was art present via a slideshow. I have compiled some images via Google Images that I believe are the pictures used, or fairly close. I do not own any of these images, I have just put them on PulpCrazy’s server for preservation against possible future dead links.

Mike Neno’s website has a picture of this panel: http://eventized.blogspot.com/2012/08/pulpfest-2012-day-iii.html

Jim Keegan was kind enough to provide his original slides below:

 

These were my best guesses prior to Jim sending me the actual sliders. Click on the images below while listening to the panel if you would like. I put them in order as best as I could.

(I can’t remember the exact Frazetta’s shown.)
