Craig Redman is an Australian born artist based in NYC, and is perhaps most famous for being the man behind Darcel. His latest endeavor, in conjunction with Turkish Airlines, is an ad campaign called “Passenger Portraits“. Using his highly stylized illustration style, Redman has created a series of 12 celebrity portraits that will be displayed all over the world. Not only is this simple, iconic style an innovative way to use celebrities in advertising, it also translates seamlessly across cultures.
Here are a few of his other celebrity portraits. The predecessors, if you will, to the “Passenger Portraits” series.
