Virgil Finlay (July 23, 1914 – January 18, 1971) was an American pulp, fantasy, science fiction and horror illustrator. He has been called "part of the pulp magazine history ... one of the foremost contributors of original and imaginative art work for the most memorable science fiction and fantasy publications of our time. While he worked in a range of media, from gouache to oils, Finlay specialized in, and became famous for, detailed pen-and-ink drawings accomplished with abundant stippling, cross-hatching, and scratchboard techniques. Despite the very labor-intensive and time-consuming nature of his specialty, Finlay created more than 2,600 works of graphic art in his 35-year career. The Science Fiction Hall of Fame inducted Virgil Finlay in 2012.
