MARILYN MONROE.. by MarkRaats
MARILYN MONROE..

I'm in the middle of a mountain of corporate deadlines and in order to stay sane I have been working on this piece on and off for the last week. A simple drawing of a screen icon. 

Copic Markers, and Prismacolor Pencils on watercolour paper - 11.5 x 16.5 inches

Thank you for looking...

Happy Birthday Harry
I've worked for Lucasfilm over the period of a quarter of a century and I had the privilege of drawing this man - probably - over a thousand times.

Happy Birthday Harrison Ford

J.J. Abrams = sheer class. by MarkRaats
J.J. Abrams = sheer class.

I signed and dedicated a Force Awakens poster to the Director and the rest of the movie crew. One of Lucasfilm's fabulous mover's and shakers arranged for it to be delivered directly Bad Robot and yesterday this arrived at my studio via DHL. The thing I dig most is that he wrote the big "Mark" in gouache paint and copic parkers, the man is sheer class.

My sincerest thanks to the remarkable J.J.Abrams for taking the trouble, his wonderful P.A. and to the Lucasfilm legend (who shall for the purposes of this post remain anonymous) for being simply fantastic

The full poster is here: markraats.deviantart.com/art/S…

Thank you Jarah!!

I know Drew personally and since we both worked for Lucasfilm for many years (and on the same franchises), I guess similarity is bound to creep in.

That said, its high praise indeed to be compared to the master and I cannot thank you enough for your kindness in doing so.

Kind regards
MARK

Your gallery is magnificent! I can see the Struzan influence. :) Lovely, clean work and great composition.

(May I ask what materials you typically use in your poster works? Do you lay colored pencil detail over acrylic or some sort of other paint base? Just curious - thanks!)
