Boris In Love

I’ve seen illustrator partners (Huyssen & Huerta) and illustrator siblings (The Brothers Hildebrandt), but never an illustrated couple…Let me introduce you to the Mr. and Mrs. Smith of the design world — Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, a married couple with equally excellent drawing skills.

Boris was the hitman behind the awesome Barbarella and Vacation one-sheets, but these two lovebirds teamed up to do the recent Aqua Teen Hunger Force poster. What I also love about The Vallejo-Bell’s is that although they are super serious sci-fi/fantasy artists, they aren’t afraid to make fun of themselves and parody their own artwork.

The Brothers Hildebrandt!

Everyone’s heard of The Coens, The Wachowskis, and The Hughes Bros — but what about Tim and Greg Hildebrandt? These wonder twins were purveyors of sci-fi/fantasy art (unfortunately, Tim died in 2006) and their legendary Star Wars poster is beloved by many Lucas fanboys, but their illustration was in fact based on the already existing Tom Jung version below (top right).

The Great McGinnis

You know you must be pretty good if they make a documentary about you. And that’s exactly what they did with Robert McGinnis.

Famous for his iconic James Bond movie posters, McGinnis was also great at drawing the ladies. Apparently, he was so detailed that he once even requested Sophia Loren’s dress be sent to his studio to complete the poster for Arabesque.
