Lindall's Illustrious Illustrations: Sunday February 21, 4 PM
These illustrations above were the sort that Lindall excelled at way back in the Seventies, during my enjoyably wayward youth, when I looked at such things, but I altogether forgot about Lindall and his cheerfully, fearfully hellish artwork till the images appeared again in my mind during the Noughties as I was engaged in scholarly work on John Milton and looking through Lindall's early Paradise Lost illustrations, which dated from around the same time as the Creepy and Eerie images or a bit later, the Seventies or early Eighties, and I suddenly recalled who Lindall was, recalled that he'd also done those counter-cultural images, and realized that the intellectual painter and the rebel illustrator were one and the same artist! Here's what Lindall says about those creative Seventies:
l illustrated for some of the most outstanding science fiction, fantasy and comic magazine writers of the 20th century. The writers were winners of Hugo Awards, Bram Stoker Awards, Nebula Awards, and more. These writers wrote for Star Trek, Star Wars and other iconic popular cultural creations. Ted White, who wrote a story especially for me, was the editor for Heavy Metal Magazine, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and Amazing Stories . . . . At the time it all seemed normal. Looking back, I realize that I was in an illustrators heaven, even though I had many more byways to search in philosophy, collecting, institution building etc.Lindall will be giving a presentation on those years of brilliant creativity:
