Besides his work on Phantom of the Paradise (below), notable comic book illustrator, Richard Vance Corben, also did some gruesomely handsome work on Heavy Metal and the aptly-titled, Spookies. Similar in style to fellow fantasy phenoms, Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo, Corben garnered a strong following for his underground comics and short films.
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.
