The Last Movie-Poster Artist

Drew Struzan painted many of the most iconic movie posters of the last three decades, including the <i>Star Wars</i> and <i>Indiana Jones</i> series

A lot of people think I did all of the Harry Potter posters, but I only did the first. The studio came to me and said, "This is going to be seven movies. So just like you did with Indiana Jones, design the look for it, and then we'll just repeat that look for the other films." I did the first one, and when they hit the theaters, people just clamored for it. But when the second movie came out, they decided to just use photography. It's a fine example of how things have changed.
