Edd Cartier, 1914—2009

There has been a fair amount of loss in the arts this Christmas season. Sadly, Edd Cartier has also passed away on Christmas day. He was a highly regarded and influential artist from the 30s to the 60s, most famous for his work on The Shadow and John W. Campbell’s Astounding Stories. He had a humorous and fluid style, equally adept at seemingly effortless figure drawing, creature design, and hardware. He  showed us a future that was truly strange, maybe a little dangerous, but always fun.
