The eyes have it

A screenshot of the current illustration I'm working on. I always start with the eyes as they are the most important feature of a person's face.

Although it's tempting to just draw one eye and then flip it round to create the second eye, I don't because the human face is never perfectly symmetrical and small differences in the eyebrows can show different emotions. When the eyes look good, I feel happy that the rest of the illustration will turn out alright  :)

R. Black

The book comes with 3D glasses as a few of his illustrations have been rendered 3D.

R. Black is the man behind some of the most memorable gig posters in the past few years. The book Futura documents his style of creating vector illustrations that are often quite dark.

There is an intro by Brian Ewing (remember I posted a review about his book here?), but there isn't much else in terms of interviews or notes to read. Which is a shame, since I like to read about the people behind the artworks and I like to know how they got started, etc. I did find an interesting interview with him online here, where he talks about his work.

Nevertheless, the work is AMAZING and as a visual history it is an awesome book. I definitely recommend it!
