My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
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.
Looks very much like Doc Savage from the covers of his magazine in the '30s. Captain Hazzard came first 'though. Interesting.
Oops, my mistake. I thought the date below the illustration said 1930, not 1938 - hence my erroneous conclusion. Cap Hazzard is therefore a Doc Savage knock-off. (Really must get a pair of spectacles.)
Kid, back then everybody was knocking-off everybody, and I guess that's true even now. Nothing-new-under-the-sun kind of thing.
Look how great Saunders handled the forced perspective, to get two complete figures front and center and yet still give them context and the threat above and below as well. Those guys were genius in laying out covers, let alone the beautiful rendering.
It's a great picture, and I'm struck by the physical likeness to Doc Savage from a cover of his own magazine.
It's the jodhpurs that do it. :) Or I just like saying "jodhpurs"
