So a couple days ago I posted some album cover art, and the above stood out, to me, as it's not a photo of the musicians and a car... it's real - cool- art. Inventive, and fun. So, I knew there was something to this artist, that whoever it was, was talented, and had a lot more to enjoy.
How talented? Well, he got started at Disney
Then branched out as an editorial cartoonist, and getting published in syndication in around 80 newspapers in the 1960s... was a pretty damn cool start, but it didn't pay much at all
Then was working with GIGER! Holy moly, on Jodorowsky's attempt on a motion picture of Frank Herbert's "Dune".
yeah... well, that didn't work out, but...
How's that for a effing amazing resume credit?!!! Oh, not good enough? Really? Fine. Then take THIS:
Still just some concept art? Damn, you're tough to impress after all these years of cool stuff. Fine. BOOM!
Gotcha!! from Sleeping Beauty, to Raiders of the Lost Arc... man, that's incredible!
What about after that? Oh, just a little time machine, for Spielberg, maybe you've heard of it?
or maybe you're not a movie fan, but like music videos instead? He was the art director of the MTV Music Video Award's, best art direction award winner, ZZ Top, Rough Boy!
from way back when the videos were cooler than the music, and that Eliminator went all space ship - and was cooler than just driving up to dusty tumble weed gas stations... it went galactic, and stopped by a car wash along the way
anyone that's been reading along for a couple years (holy shit, really? For YEARS? You're either a bit of a car nut, or waiting to see just WHAT the hell I find next, to possibly fulfill your life's need for cool stuff (don't laugh, it happened yesterday, I shit you not! https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2019/03/compliment-of-day.html ) you'll recall I've already posted some related ZZ Top, Afterburner cover art, video, etc
never realizing that for other reasons, I'd also post about the award winning music video art director!
and then went onto some designs for a couple movies you might know, District 9, Cats and Dogs, The Rocketeer, and John Carter on Mars.
