Illustrators I love: David Plunkert

During all the years I worked as an art director on various magazines, I had the pleasure to work with some fabulous illustrators. David Plunkert has always been a favorite. Here are some of his pieces. The first three, from an article for Audubon Magazine are different for him... I really love what he's doing here with the textures and childlike renderings.

David Plunkert. The "block" style.

This is one of many posters he and his studio Spur Design have done for  Theatre Project. Super-smart concepts and strong graphics.

I've always loved his collage style.

Kubrick's One-Point Perspective

Among Kubrick's notable innovations in cinematography are his use of special effects, as in 2001, where he used both slit-scan photography, front-screen projection, and his notorius use of "one-point perspective," which leads the viewer's eye towards a central vanishing point. The technique relies on creating a complex visual symmetry using parallel lines in a scene which all converge on that single point, leading away from the viewer.
