Drew: The Man Behind the Poster

With movie posters you see them, but you take them for granted. For most people they are there for the sole purpose of telling you what movie is playing at the local cinema; which is sad. Some movie posters are beautiful works of art. And there is one man who has taken that art form to a whole different level.

Drew Struzan has created some of the most iconic film posters in movie history. From Star Wars to The Goonies to Indiana Jones to Back to the Future, the man has hand drawn some of the most beautiful pieces of artwork. He has a talent for capturing and telling the story of the entire movie in one sheet. He makes you want to see the thing he has presented to you on the poster.
