Jim & Ruth Keegan have joined the 21st century with their blog Jim & Ruth’s Two-Gun Blog, where you can view their new paintings and read the latest news about them. Jim & Ruth are the creators of The Adventures of Two-Gun Bob, which appears in the back of every issue of Conan, Solomon Kane, or Kull comic books. They have also illustrated the books The Best of Robert E. Howard Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 as well as El Borak for Del-Rey Books, and Crimson Shadows for Subterranean Books. (Which can be purchased from Bud’s Art Books.)
The above cover artwork is for the book The Early Adventures of El Borak, a new collection from the Robert E. Howard Foundation.
Jim & Ruth will be guests of the Robert E. Howard weekend in Cross Plains, Texas this June. I’m not sure of the actual day yet, but will post the information when I learn more details. Or, better yet, keep checking Jim & Ruth’s blog for the announcement.
Jim is also an exceptional designer, who is responsible for the design of our Jules Verne’s Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea book adapted by Gary Gianni. Jim & Ruth also colored the book.
