This comes on the heels of Drew’s tribute to the great Jack Davis, one of the most prolific artists of our time, who’s still going strong in his 80s. His work for E.C. Comics and Mad paved the way for a long and varied career drawing covers for record albums and major magazines, and much, much more. He, too, was frequently called upon to create movie posters; perhaps his most memorable were It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and Woody Allen’s Bananas. You can read highlights of Drew Friedman’s recent interview with Davis, and see some of his work, HERE.
Many big-name artists, from Norman Rockwell to Al Hirschfeld, dabbled in movie posters over the decades, but Frazetta and Davis created a niche all their own. What’s more, many of their posters are still available—and affordable.
