Spooky Oldies From Reynold Brown

Contributed by Owen Schumacher

As we draw ever closer to the creepiest night of the year, it's only fitting to recall the classic horror movie posters of Reynold Brown. Aside from covering a lot of the silly schlock films of the '50s—Tarantula and I Was a Teenage Werewolf, anyone?—Brown also illustrated a number of noirish paper back covers, too, like author Erle Gardner's Silent Cover (1948) and Martha Albrand's After Midnight (1951).

Oh, and he also did the Ben-Hur poster—which to me is hands-down one of the great movie posters of all time. Just look at that epic, stony title ascending to the heavens. It stirs the soul!

Anyway, let Reynold give you some campy thrills this Halloween season. And as you wait for trick or treaters to ring the doorbell, cue The Time Machine on NetFlix while you're at it. The Eloi can't defeat the Morlocks on their own.

Divination & Delusion

Kris Kuksi Art Book

Kris Kuksi art book, Divination & Delusion

Kris Kuksi’s sculptures, rendered in immaculate detail, evoke a grandeur reminiscent of the Baroque era. Kuksi successfully merges this sumptuous echo of the past with a satirical and critical commentary of our modern industrial world. These finely crafted sculptures employ images of Gods and Goddesses from past and present mythologies and examine religious belief and iconography. Despite the frequent portrayal of corruption, violence, chaos and degeneration, the works in this book challenge aspects of our beliefs and question whether or not humans have the ability to improve the world’s prosperity.

The creation of these sculptures spans the last five years and embodies Kuksi’s personal view of our turbulent world. These beautiful assemblages grace the walls of galleries and museums throughout the world and are displayed in the homes of numerous celebrities.

This stunning volume allows the wider public to examine and appreciate these artworks in exquisite detail for the first time.

The Color Pencil Artwork of Laura Zarrin

The color pencil artwork of illustrator Laura Zarrin

With several children's books to her credit, Laura Zarrin is an experienced, talented illustrator whose warm, color pencil drawings have a style all their own. Wonderful textures and patterns adorn her brightly colored artwork. Some of Laura's characters are reminiscent of well-known illustrator, Richard Scarry's characters.

Color pencil is a difficult medium to master. Those of you who have worked with it before know this to be true. Laura's artwork is so beautifully executed one might be inclined to think otherwise. It would be very interesting, and undoubtedly very educational to watch a video on Laura's techniques.

The Brush Behind Your Favorite Films: Drew Struzan

Contributed by Owen Schumacher

Quick! What's your favorite '80s movie? There's a pretty good chance veteran illustrator, Drew Struzan, painted the poster for it. Besides being the go-to guy for all the legendary Star Wars posters—the imagery of which seemed to be seared on our childhood minds with a hot iron... in the best way!—he also covered basically every other movie you liked, too. And aside from being a force in Hollywood's art department, he's done a ton of publishing and packaging graphics, as well. I oughta know: I played his version of Clue when I was younger. Hey, it's still in the closet! Some things are too dear to be sold on eBay.

Anyway, sit back, relax in your office chair and take a stroll—a figurative one... don't leave me now—through some of yours and my more youthful favorites.
