Reynold Brown
(1917 - 1991)

Ads for Mobil Oil and during WW2, North American Aviation. Illustrated Argosy, Popular Science, Saturday Evening Post, Boy's Life, Outdoor Life, Popular Aviation, Flying Magazine, and paperback covers (Ox-Bow Incident, Perry Mason). Took over the Tailspin Tommy comicstrip from Hal Foster and Glenn Chaffin. Movie posters for How the West Was Won, Thunder Bay, The Alamo, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, King of Kings, Man of a Thousand Faces, Shenandoah, Mutiny on the Bounty, Ben Hur, Spartacus. Also posters for classic sci-fi and horror: The Time Machine, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Incredible Shrinking Man, This Island Earth, and not-so-classic: Monster on Campus, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, Attack of the 50' Woman, The Land Unknown, Burn Witch Burn. In the case of drive-in flicks like Atomic Submarine, his quality poster art put the movie to shame. Married fellow artist Mary Louise Tejeda, whom he met at North American.
