Here are a few choices from illustration master Philip Castle. I’m not normally a fan of the smooth airbrush style, but Philip does it with ease and grace with an obvious design sensibility. I didn’t realize until recently that he was the man behind the Clockwork Orange movie poster. Awesome.

Castle’s work also has a slight hint of art deco stylings which can be seen in his framework and overlapping shades. Good stuff.

I’m at a loss to find an official website for him, but check out this Philip Castle page on Sci-F-O-Rama for more information.

  1. Wow, that’s some pretty killer work. I have to agree with you on the smooth airbrush style. I think it’s this general indifference that makes me so excited when I see such outstanding examples of the medium.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. The Clockwork Orange movie poster is to me, by far, the best movie poster I’ve ever seen. So much depth and yet so minimalistic, crazy…
