A classic sci-fi pose with a space ranger in red rescuing a damsel in distress. Part of Rick "Marlowe" Schneider's Pulp series inspired by the best of the bygone era of the 1930s and 1940s. In this image, Rick placed the subjects against an exciting combination of yellow, purple, blue, and green in different patterns. A typical image from films of that time was of women wearing bullet bras and villains as space creatures.

Leland, North Carolina

Artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider creates mixed-media collages, combining the use of handmade paper with a raised dimensional technique. "This process produces distinct shadows which make the imagery jump off the canvas," says Rick. His work is a contemporary nod to 1930s and 1940s graphic design. By bringing together bold color combinations and patterns with quirky typefaces, Rick's work embodies the fun and elegant movie posters of Hollywood's Golden Age. Inspiration for his narratives comes from his father who was a pulp fiction writer. His loft studio in Leland, North Carolina, houses his archive of pulp magazines and stories from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. "My workspace is cluttered with canvases and handmade paper that I have imported from Thailand. It may be impossible to walk around but the atmosphere is perfect for creating."
