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:
