A Brief History of Illustration (Part IV)

We are almost finishing this Brief History of Illustration.

In this part we are gonna run through 30 years of history beginning with the Psychodelia of the 70’s to finish with the tech 90’s and the first steps of Internet. This is the end of the world as we knew it.

The main facts of this period are:

1.- Punk style.

2.- Science-Fiction.

3.- The development of a growing market for magazines fosters the opportunities for new and young illustrators. Some of them are working for the Movies Industry creating amazing posters.

4.- In the print history we have: Laser Printer (1969), Dot Matrix Printer (1970), Inkjet Printer (1976), Fine Art Digital Photo Printers(1991) and 3D Printing (1993).

4.- The growing industry of the Advertising.

5.- Artistic influences of the period: Performance Art, Photorealism, Post-Modernism, Techno-Impressionism

In this chapter we are going to see the famous movie poster creator Chris Foss, the psychodelic Gerald Scarfe, the irreverent Ian Pollock, the beautiful simplicity which charmed Woody Allen in the illustrator Jean Michel Folon, the popup books of Jan Piekowski, the tenderness of Maurice Sendak and, finally, the iconic Phillip Castle with the famous red tongue of Rolling Stones and the violence of the movie Clockwork Orange.

Enjoy it!

The next week, the final part.
