Frank McCarthy

Artist Bio

Frank McCarthy began his career in art working elbow to elbow with many great painters during illustration’s Golden Age. They painted and brawled together in the 50’s and 60’s, living the Bohemian life in what was called “The Bullpen,” a building in Midtown Manhattan that was, in reality, a hive of artists who lived from assignment to assignment as the “Mad Men” of the day dreamed up campaigns for pulp novels, cigarettes, lingerie and Oldsmobile. McCarthy illustrated books and magazine stories and did posters for Hollywood–James Bond films in particular. In 1974, McCarthy shed his journeyman artist role and moved to Arizona, where he set up his easel and created some of the finest action scenes that ever leapt out of the Old West.
