John Berkey

Another Great discovery: This John Berkey a world famous artist. Once again after buying one of the latest Illustrator magazines in the same comic book store where I discovered Alton Tobey, this time again I found out that Berkey died in 2008. He was the illustrator behind those famous posters of the movies King Kong in 1976 and Star Wars and much others, a true icon. One curious fact is that he works with casein and acrylics. I wonder if next time I leave that store I am going to find another master that is still breathing.
