In the days of Mad Men, men's adventure magazines thrived. With titles like Stag, Male, For Men Only, and Man's Conquest, their crazy covers and even crazier stories were distinctly American. Bruce Minney spent 20 years working as an illustrator for men's adventure magazines painting beautiful women, gorillas, lions, tigers, bears, elephants, alligators, headhunters, Nazis, airplanes, aircraft carriers, tanks, guns, and lots of explosions but hardly anyone knows who he is.
We took down the show at the St. Augustine Art Association today. They were gracious enough to extend it through November and December. By any measure, the show was a great success. We sold 10 pieces, including my favorite, Mona Lisa in a Packard.
