Did you ever wonder who the artist was that painted all those classic movie posters? You see his work and it's immediately apparent that it's the same artist. He has created some of the most recognizable imagery in the history of film: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Harry Potter, The Goonies, E.T., Shawshank Redemption, and hundreds more. His name is Drew Struzan, and his paintings have probably been seen by more eyes than any other artist in history.

He's so good, he even makes bad movies look great.


I always knew his work, but never knew anything about the man himself. Until I ran across a nice little documentary about him on the DVD for the underrated horror film The Mist. I went ahead and uploaded the film to YouTube for prosperity purpose. Here is: Drew Struzan: An Appreciation of an Artist - Featuring appearances by filmmakers Frank Darabont and Guilermo Del Toro




For more information about the man, or if you've got an extra $50 to $100K laying around, you can purchase his original artwork at: DrewStruzan.com - Or check out his biography on: Wikipedia
