Walking into a movie theater nowadays, most posters have that over-the-top blockbuster aesthetic, but I bet these David O'Daniel film posters would be much more effective at getting people's attention. With its wild wild west aesthetic, David O'Daniel's illustrations hit the selling point of each movie on the head without having to resort to anything but minimalist designs.

Some of the movies covered in this David O'Daniel collection include Jaws, The Dark Knight, True Grit, Seven Samurai, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Se7en, and my personal favorite, Donnie Darko.

Implications - Consumers are appreciative of fine arts illustrations in comparison to computer-generated graphics because they can readily identify human effort and technical skill in fine arts illustrations.
