Here is a well-framed rare published dramatic signed pulp illustration drawing of a Western buffalo hunt by pulp artist. Benjamin Goodwin Seielstad, who worked as B. Was an American painter and illustrator.
He claimed his first job was covering the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. He worked for a variety of newspapers and for Popular Science Monthly in the 1930s before working at Life magazine in the 1940s. He was accorded a great deal of latitude in illustrating articles for Popular Science Monthly on topics such as an automated freeway, a futuristic city, and "How The World Will End". Seielstad claimed his first job was covering the San Francisco Earthquake (1906).
He worked as an illustrator for the Los Angeles Examiner and the Los Angeles Times, as well as for the New York Daily News, New York World and the Philadelphia Examiner. In the 1930s he illustrated numerous articles in Popular Science Monthly for which he produced drawings showing the technical aspects of products such as a cutaway of a pocket watch (1931), as well as others showing forecast and speculative scientific developments such as a future city (1934) based on the ideas of British writer R. Wilenski which envisaged cities composed of buildings on slender trunks like trees. The degree of license given to Seielstad in interpreting the article text was reflected in Popular Science's comment "our artist presents here his conception of this startling proposal". He also drew an automatic freeway (1938) and produced four illustrations for an article titled "How The World Will End" (1939), one of which showed a "giant meteor" about to hit New York City and the city's inhabitants fleeing for their lives.By 1940, Seielstad was working for Life magazine and was pictured at work in their 1940 issue commenting that the events of the Second World War were like his first job covering the San Francisco Earthquake. He described his love of "candid-camera" work to aid him in his drawing and how he used the reader's eye like the lens of a camera, "unfolding a scene before it with his drawings".
