Something ive been thinking about recently at night whislt at the drawing table and what probably is one of the biggest travestys in the art world is the lack of illustrated work on advertisments. Particulary for movie posters and book covers. I look back on the old Bond posters throughout the 60's, 70's ands 80's with a child like excitment. The amount of action, intriegue and of course the gorgously painted women still take my breath away and then i turn to what we have today. Really?

I cant believe that tastes have changed that we want such a minimilst and stale look because im betting that 100% of people who would look at these 2 images would agree that the painted image is far superior. no question about it.

It has to simply be down to cost. Lets say it takes 3 weeks to paint a movie poster, thats taking into consideration collecting refrences and intital sketches. If done digitally on computer you could achieve the skyfall poster in an afternoon.

Probably the last artist to work on a painted movie poster would be drew struzan. Next lets look at book covers.

Ahh The master that is Robert Mcginnis. All of his women were drawn with such style and precision. They all looked like women who could mercilessley kill you if you got on their bad side but you know what, mayb it would b worth it just 2 get a taste of their good side.
Comic books seems to be our last saviour. However iroincally in the very early 40's romance comics actual phtographs were used for a short time rather that the artist arwork to entice passers bye to pick up a copy. Damn that milkshake looks gd!

I guess we will always have the art to look back on.
