Hannes Bok

Illustrator Wayne Francis Woodward used the penname "Hannes Bok" as a sort derivation of "Johannes Bach" (at least according to Wikipedia). As an illustrator he did pictures for those 30s and 40s Science Fiction and Horror magazines, "Amazing" and "Weird Tales" and so on.
I think they're kind of special; they stick in the memory. I recognized the style from leafing through old Science Fiction anthologies long before I learned the name "Hannes Bok".
Hannes Bok died a reclusive in 1964, but his work still retains it's weird power.
No titles for the pictures found:

Ruston Bucyrus


























In yonder forest
Ruston Bucyrus
What is it?
One does not know
But it 'rusts on'
to make a pun

Kitchen Shelf

Better Latté Then Never!

University Town Judy,
taps the back of her tongue stud,
on the rim of a latté...
What? Lattés are passé you say?
Well, that's another cutting-edge bit of satire brutally blunted, then!

Cryptoclidus by Zdenek Burian, 1955

One of my definite favourites from childhood. I like the perspective combined with the water.
