Imagine what it would be like to walk into a commercial art studio in Detroit in 1981 without any formal training as an illustrator and ask for a job.
You now have a pretty good idea of how Garth Glazier’s career as a professional illustrator began.
As a graduate with a BFA from a small liberal arts college he knew that he had to find a way to make a living by drawing. Getting a job in a studio gave him a chance to learn from some of the best talent in the country.
28 years later, he is still in “the business” and still creating some really high quality artwork, like a fantastic new set of concept posters for the ever popular cult classic, Star Trek.
The posters are a continuing series and Garth took a completely graphic approach using only flat color, creating the artwork in Adobe Illustrator.
Check out two of the posters below, as well as a study sketch. At the bottom, you’ll find closer detailed captures of the individual characters.
