illustration by Bob Peak
Spanning a decades-long career with over 130 film posters to his name, illustrator Bob Peak has left an indelible mark on audiences everywhere—whether they know him or not. This month, Brandon Schaefer and guest host, illustration expert Jay Shaw dive into the career of the man who has been called “the father of the modern movie poster” and examine the other areas of American culture that felt his unique touch throughout the years. They also crack open the Flat File to look at the art and design for the 1975 Norman Jewison sci-fi dystopian film Rollerball.
