AllPosterForum recently had a Sci-Fi smackdown about the iconic 60’s Barbarella poster featuring the artwork of several top movie poster artists such as Robert McGinnis (top left), Boris Vallejo (top, third from left), and The Hildebrandt Bros (top, far right)…
Besides his work on
(below), notable comic book illustrator, Phantom of the Paradise 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.
