Sanjulian- Euroart meets the Western, Part 2 (NSFW)

I mentioned in my last post that I had run across a terrific Spanish painter named Sanjulian who does cover work for a variety of genres, including westerns.  It appears that standards for what can go on covers is a little different in Europe than in the United States, because these paintings are a little beyond the taste of what Americans will take on a Walmart book shelf.  

This last one is from Thuvia, Maid of Mars, an Edgar Rice Burroughs planetary romance, but was too good to pass up here.


  1. Yeap, something I've noticed too. I have some European cover images from the Lassiter series and it's fun seeing from where the elements that make up the cover painting have been taken from: for instance loads of them feature page 3 girls lifted from the UK daily paper The Sun, in fact I can name most of the girls.

  2. Very funny! I remember putting together a space age Geisha from a role playing game with a girl from a old "Girls of James Bond" Playboy from the Moonraker era. The girl in the RPG had on underwear; the Playboy one didn't.
