Bob Peak

You might not know his name, but have seen his work dozens of time. Bob Peak (1927 - 1992) was the master illustrator and watercolor artist behind iconic posters for movies such as Apocalypse Now, The Dark Crystal, and Superman: The Movie. His imagination and technical skill put him at the top of his game for a long time. Expect to see much more of his work here in the near future. I'll kick it off with two pieces I scanned in from a 1979 magazine feature.
