Biography

Michael Koelsch is an illustrator, designer and digital artist who acknowledges the beliefs of some of the great illustrators of retro era 50's and 60's - the giants like Coby Whitmore and Austin Briggs, who thought that keeping up with the times and evolving your style is as important as your sense of design and color... along with the fundamentals of drawing and painting. He has worked with every major publishing house, countless advertising agencies, and a large number of design agencies and magazines. Best known for his retro style and horror film posters, Michael Koelsch continues to evolve and adjust his styles for each client.
