If you've been in a movie theater within the past 15 years, chances are you've walked by this man's art.
Paul Shipper is one of the most sought after movie poster artists in the world. Search his name on google & some of the most instantly-recognizable images from films will pop up. Movies such as Star Wars, Avengers, Indiana Jones, Ready Player One... the list goes on and continues to grow.
Continuing in the tradition of artists such as Drew Struzan, Norman Rockwell, and JC Leyndecker before him, Paul Shipper creates art that is somehow both photo-realistic and fantastical in how it's received. Here, he talks about his formative years as an artist, his process, and how he approaches client work. He also gives us a quick tour of his studio (which you can see in the video version of this episode).
