James Bama Turns 90

Considering all the celebrities and influential pop culture folks we've lost in recent months, I thought it appropriate to give a shout-out to realist illustrator James Bama on the occasion of his 90th birthday. In the 1960s and 1970s, Bama's art could be seen by boomers on now classic STAR TREK and DOC SAVAGE paperback covers as well as the original Aurora model boxes. In later years, he turned his amazing skills to western painting.
