Help with an Illustration style

The other day I stumbled upon an illustrator, Paul A. Lanquist, and was very intriqued with his style of poster painting. I don't know if he uses gouache, but it looks perfect for his technique.
Does anyone know of other illustrators who use this "posterized/non-blended" technique that I could study? I've seen this style before does it have a name?

Re: Help with an Illustration style

Thanks for the link. He has a nice style.
I don't know of any other links to send you to but...
If you have Photoshop (or similar program), you could posterize a photo on one layer and overlay an outline of the photo on another layer. This would give you simplified, outlined shapes that you could use as a starting point for your own paintings.
