Bill Gold


(above: photo via Roundtable Pictures)

Today, Laura ("Diversity Is Beautiful") posted a stellar photograph (see right below) showing the grandmaster of movie poster design, Bill Gold. This reminded me of how much good design reflects individual taste.



I was and still am hungry for Bill Gold's work and style, he's a true master of his trade and a big inspiration and huge influence to me. For instance, his use of negative space is such an active element in his graphic art and became branded on my own work, through and through.

By the way, there were two sweet articles, one in The Telegraph "Bill Gold: the Mad Man of movie posters" and the other one on the online mag Sabotage Times "Bill Gold: The Man Behind the Movie Posters".

Here're just a few samples of his enormous body of work. Bill Gold’s work spans six decades and over two thousand films:

Pencil And Paper Only Diet Completed

I successfully completed my pencil-and-paper-only diet and am now more than ready again for my electronic guns...



I even returned for a sec to the red and blue technique I liked to use.

Suspending Drawing Critters For A Sec


Along with my freaking talented pals Francisco Herrera, Flaviano Armentaro and Pascal Campion, I'm part of the knock-out book project Masters of Anatomy, curated by the great Suny Mann.


Well, truth be told, I don't feel like a master and don't anticipate ever feeling like one, but I'm very happy to be part of this very group of artists and look forward to suspending drawing looney critters for a sec and get some classical poses done!

That reminds me, by the way, of art school, life drawing classes, tuna sandwiches and trent park campus... good times ;-)
