Robert McGinnis

Here is some work that I have looked it by Robert McGinnis, the majority of his work focuses on women looking at their pose and attitude that they hold. The work he produces
is movie posters and paper book covers.

Above: Portrait of Raquel Welch for The Biggest Bundle of Them All

These movie art posters are designed with the style of a comic book with the particular colours and shading used.

Thunderball (1965) - McGinnis 007

Casino Royale (1967) - McGinnis 009

Saturday Evening Post, "Kitten On A Trampoline" (1961) - McGinnis 016

The reason for choosing these particular images because they have a good representation to what I have been developing my ideas and designs buy looking at the female figure as something that is attractive to appeal to the male audience to promote a particular object or item, and how this is all to do with how the women holds herself in the image to do with her pose.
