The Essence of Cesselon

Following his higher calling in movie posters, it’s no wonder that Italian illustrator, Angelo Cesselon, later moved onto drawing portraits of saints and other religious paintings for churches since looking at his beautiful work can be somewhat of a religious experience.

I’m not sure if he was repenting for all of his past pretty Marilyn Monroe depictions — regardless, his many artful creations are for the ages. (via Dominique Besson)
