Framed and matted under glass view

This dramatic, futuristic sci-fi interior pulp illustration was created by Harold McCauley for an as-of-yet unidentified Ziff-Davis title. The image shows a nervous gentleman approaching a modernist machine-age baby factory - an ominous mid-century sperm bank it appears - as a smoking figure with classic new father anxiety gazes up at the image of a sparkling infant which lights up the sky over the factory grounds. Really well articulated and conceived, in a classic over-the-top pulp fiction aesthetic that recalls the work of McCauley's contemporary Virgil Finlay. Illustration has been professionally matted and framed under glass and remains in a fine state of original conservation.
