The spectacular art of John Gannam, known best for his sumptuous watercolor and gouache magazine illustrations in the 1930s and '40s.

"In 1934 C. B. Mayshark painted covers and pen-and-ink interior story illustrations for the popular and long-running pulps Sky Birds and Flying Aces. In addition, he wrote several descriptive articles about his cover paintings, which were featured inside the magazines. He signed his work for pulp magazines "C. B. Mayshark" and "C.B.M." During WWII C. B. Mayshark served as a Second Lieutenant in the Army Air Corps, 17th Bomber Wing, Second Air Corps, Radio Division. He was stationed at an air base in Idaho, where he painted a mural in Building 23."

"After the war, he returned to advertising work and opened a lithographic printing shop. He printed travel posters for the state of New Mexico after moving there in the early 1950s. He also did personal art until his death in 1978. His work was exhibited at at least three universities during his lifetime." -from David Saunders' pulpartists.com.
