Boris Vallejo

(1/7) > >>

Ok, he is one of of my favorite poster artists ,and the only one I am currently collecting.  Unlike some, Struzan for example, he has 2 dozen posters at most.  This thread is intended to serve as a master list of posters containing Boris art, and eventually house photos of all of those posters.  Maybe if this one works out well, others can do the same for other artists.  It would certainly prove a valuable resource to collectors.

As a longtime Boris fan, I am always scouring the net for images of this man's work.  And, as Schan and Bruce both pointed out, he has many imitators.  Here is a Turkish Conan the Destroyer one sheet I recently purchased only because the clever Turks had photoshopped a Boris image into the lower right (not to mention the fact that they had also added a Grace Slick Bond image to the lower left).
The image is Red Sonja, painted for a series of Boris pieces on the red-haired heroine of the Hyborian Age. The art they swiped has nothing to do with the movie but I guess they thought it looked cooler than the photo montage on the American 1 sheet.
And, as proof of how imitated Boris' work is, I have also included a B&W chili ad that I just found where a very talented artist (who didn't need to to do this) swiped the same image for this Chili Takedown ad.


Hi, Folks!

Two British quads incorporating similar artwork ...

... apologies for the next image - we don't have the poster, so can't re-photograph it ...

At the risk of incurring the wrath of the moderators, may I point out that one of our two NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VACATION quads is currently on at an opening bid of 35 US dollars

Best wishes,

Terry -

Thanks Terry, I wasnt intentionally leaving out British or any other nationalities for that matter.  I simply chose to include only those international posters with unique artwork.  It is worth pointing out, though, that many of these are available with the same art in various international formats, most notably UK quads and Australian one sheets and daybills.

Speaking of Quads -- and I absolutely love the format --
here is a cool variation of Boris' Q. 
I don't own it -- yet...
