This site is fantastic. There are thousands upon thousands of images. Following are mostly russian posters from the 20’s (ish). I’m a sucker for this stuff. Go to the site if you get the chance. So much to see. The russian images are found in the vintage movie ad section.

Ralph Steadman - Editorial

I am not sure whether he would consider himself to be a character designer or not, but I certainly like his characters. I will leave the decision up to you.

Gris Grimly - Childrens Books

Well, Here he is. I have had the pleasure of knowing Steven for many years, and he is a stand-up guy. And Right Talented. I specially enjoy his characters. If you like his stuff, you might also like artists along the lines of Tim Burton, Maurice Sendack and Ralph Steadman.

Treadway . Toomey Galleries - Products

Filed under: — Dallas Good @ 1:03 am

This site is great. They have thousands of images online for you to peruse. They have pretty good taste too. They focus on items from the last 100 years. You can get quite a design education just by studying their products.

It was hard to narrow it down to just a couple images, but here are six that I like.

Carter Goodrich - Character Designer

Filed under: — Dallas Good @ 1:27 am

As far as I know, Carter is still a studio artist. I have seen his work for "Emporers New Groove" and "Treasure Planet" which were Disney films. I believe he started out as an illustrator as I have seen some of his Cover Illustrations as far back as the 90’s. I haven’t been able to find a Web Site that is dedicated to him yet. All too often, the "heavy hitters" don’t feel the need to advertise, as the industry mucky-mucks are already aware of them and keeping them busy. No need to advertise, I guess.

I like Carter’s work a lot.


Lebbeus Woods - Architect

There are probably a lot of sites that show his work, but here is one that I ran across. A lot of Entertainment designers use his work as inspiration for their production design. A good example is the chair in 12 Monkeys.
