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

The process with that movie was quite the opposite. I went to lunch with an art director and he had an idea that he drew on a napkin, believe it or not. He said, "This is what we want." And I just went home and painted it and that was that. Some of these movies I've never seen. I'm just looking for the spirit of the thing. I flip through the book of still photos, and that's like watching a movie frame by frame. I see all of the themes and the design and the colors.
