Solie Patrol!

Meet John Solie, yet another movie poster artist who now mainly does Western Art (Remember Robert Tanenbaum and Howard Terpning?). By the way, what’s up with all these ex-movie poster illustrators into Western Art? Maybe it pays better.

Anyway, Mr. Solie is well-known for his portraits of the well-known (i.e., celebrity portraits) and has done a ton of stuff for TV Guide, Reader’s Digest, and even NASA! I guess those astronauts must’ve loved Strange Brew.

The Royal Tanenbaum

No, not the Wes Anderson movie — this is the work of Robert Tanenbaum! One of the go-to-poster artists for major movie studios back in the 70’s, he has since moved onto specialize in doing portraits of Native Americans, dancers, and sports figures.

Xmas List
