One of the most popular movie poster artists of the 20th Century is, hands down, none other than Drew Struzan. For nearly 40 years, he has created some of the most iconic and memorable one-sheets for some of Hollywood’s biggest and highest grossing movies. Attention to detail resulting in amazing art has put Drew’s name at the top of the list for many filmmakers and friends who repeatedly commission him to create posters for their projects … Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Guillermo Del Toro are just a few of the people that have relied on Drew Struzan’s talent throughout the years.
With franchises like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, The Muppets and Harry Potter on his resume, Drew Struzan’s works have evolved the modern movie poster into true art that can be cherished and hung in homes, rather than just existing as marketing material created for movie theaters. With a new documentary about his illustrated career coming out soon, Drew recently invited long-time friends, (and Beyond the Marquee founders) Steve Czarnecki and Jon Donahue, over to his studio to chat about his career and much more.
In Part One of our Two Part Exclusive interview with Drew Struzan, we hear from Drew himself about his life after retirement, new side projects he’s undertaking, his thoughts on the new documentary … and if he officially clears up rumors about his involvement with the new Star Wars movie!
