    Director Roman Coppola has long been a fan of airbrush art, as demonstrated in his 1999 music video for Mellow. This poster series by Percival and Associates clearly references the work of Dave WillardsonPeter Palombi, and designer/artist Charles E. White III on whom the movie is loosely based. But maybe better than Charlie Swan is this fantastic 1968 film (NSFW) of Charlie White painting on a nude body.

    The type is an easy reference to 1970–80s design, ITC Souvenir, Ed Benguiat’s goopy update of a Morris Fuller Benton face.

    If you like this, you’ll love Overspray, the definitive book on California airbrush art.
