Documentary about Robert McGinnis

January 10, 2011

Robert McGinnis is a great illustrator, well-known for his paperback covers and movie posters. I recently watched a documentary about him on DVD that I’d like to recommend, “Robert McGinnis: “Painting the Last Rose of Summer.”

The film tells a little bit about his life and shows many closeups of his work. There’s a short segment on how he made a particular painting that’s interesting to see. On the link above, the producers mention that they are planning the release of another DVD in April that will go into more detail on his painting process.

On Youtube I also found this TV news clip about his doing new crime novel paperback covers showing him in his studio.
