M. Weistling Art
Working in a Los Angeles art supply store while attending art school, Morgan Weistling often
showed some of his own work to noted artist whenever they came in. One such customer was a
famous movie poster artist. As a result of their chance encounter, at the age of 19, Weistling
began a notable career as an illustrator.
Weistling became well-known in the film industry for his
illustrations whose amazing celebrity likenesses promoted movies and their merchandise such
as Anastasia, The Santa Clause, Last Action Hero, The Lost World, and countless action
thrillers. The list of movie stars whose features Weistling has flawlessly captured reads
like a stroll down the star-studded sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard, and his clients have
included many major studios.
In addition to movie posters, he has designed inspirational, nostalgic and science
fiction collector plate series as well as artwork for Sega pinball machines. He also
created all the cover artwork for the video series, McGee and Me for Focus on the Family, and
his art can be seen on numerous magazine, book, CD, and video covers. The winner of many
awards from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, he has taught at the Associates
Morgan's clients include
Tyndale House Publishers, Gospel Light, Maranatha Music, and Wycliff Bible Translations.
Other clients have included Lenox, Focus on the Family, Universal/Amblin Entertainment,
Disney, MGM, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers, Columbia Pictures, TriStar, and
Weistling, his wife, JoAnn (who is also an artist), and their daughter, Brittany, make their
home in California. Recently, when Weistling turned his considerable talents to fine
gallery art, he found himself unable to keep up with collector demand for his
originals His amazingly realistic paintings and religious subjects make the viewer feel
like an eye-witness to an unfolding scene due, in part, to his experience in the film
Weistling thinks like a skilled cinematographer, envisioning himself as part of the
scene that he is painting. He then visualized how it would look on the movie
screen. With his masterful use of oils, he makes the transition from his
imagination to the canvas, bringing the scene to life with spectacular lighting to
fully involve the viewer's imagination and emotions.
Whether capturing unforgettable moments from the big screen, images inspired by
his beliefs, or little scenes from daily life, the art of Morgan Weistling engages
the mind and touches the heart.
