Have Some Cake, Mr. McGinnis

As The Stiletto Gumshoe notes, today is the birthday of renowned American painter-illustrator Robert McGinnis, born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1926. I’ve written several times about McGinnis and his amazing paperback cover art, including this piece for CrimeReads and this other one for The Rap Sheet, in which I interviewed Art Scott, co-author of the beautiful 2014 book, The Art of Robert McGinnis.

It’s always a pleasure to study McGinnis’ breadth of work. May he be with us—still painting—for many more years to come.
