The Artwork of Ray Quigley

Ray Quigley's best known work was as the illustrator of the Gus Wilson stories (for more information go to )that were a regular part of Popular Science magazine for years. As Ray's grand-nephew I have the good fortune to have access to some of the original illustrations used in the series. He also did the illustrations for several grammer school text books, Boy's Life magazine, some science fiction magazines and a Golden Book.

If you are selling any Ray Quigley original artwork please e-mail me. I will warn you upfront, it is not very commercial.

I can be e-mailed at
