Ray Bradbury by Lou Romano

Ray Bradbury by Lou Romano

Animation artist Lou Romano (The Incredibles, Up) makes a strong case for using illustrations on magazine covers with this attractive cover for Written By magazine in honor of Ray Bradbury’s ninetieth birthday. Better still, there’s an artwork-heavy post on Lou’s blog documenting the creative process for this illustration.

    Fantastically gorgeous. Romano is a unique talent, but there’s never been any question of that, has there?

    Amid, I couldn’t agree more! Lou is an amazingly gifted guy, and his caricature of Ray is absolutely priceless!

    It’s heartening to see that brilliant creative people like Lou Romano are indecisive at times, too :)

    Pretty amazing to see all that went into this final piece. Turned out great!-Funny thing is that the other versions also looked great. How do you decide which great to go with?
