This 1948 paperback edition of Erskine's 1925 novel, with cover painting by Rudolph Belarski, certainly must have awakened a lot of schoolboys' interest in classical history. Heck, I'm gonna go read up a bit myself.
Belarski, of course, was a popular cover artist for pulps and paperbacks.

People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
