Saw a great collection of Mexican Lobby Cards at Stephen Worth's ASIFA blog. Great stuff. He challenged readers to identify elements that made them effective - that grabbed me- so I took a Jim Thompson paperback cover and another scifi paperback cover - and voila'! Completed at 11:05 EST (note my comment time @ ASIFA - I rushed it - even with a bathroom break). See the real ones at: http://www.animationarchive.org/2006/03/media-more-fun-mexican-lobby-cards.html
Picture's also a link to the collection of real ones!!
