Advert Break – THE ART OF DREW STRUZAN

One my enduring images growing up was some of the amazing Indiana Jones posters by Drew Struzan. I still remember seeing the first teaser image for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and think ‘I have to have that poster’.

I’m all of us have similar stories and encounters with one of Drew’s film posters,

Trust me if you call yourself a geek you will have come across Drew’s work which is always stunning.

Check the press release below regarding a book of his fantastic art which is being released this Friday.
