Born in 1947, Drew Struzan has been drawing and painting since he was a child. He worked his way through the Art Center College of Design in California, earning a bachelor of arts degree with great distinction and completing two years of graduate studies. Struzan is one of the most influential artists working as an illustrator today, and his paintings have delighted audiences around the world for 25 years. He has painted album covers, advertising, collectibles, and book covers, but he is best known for his famous movie posters. Steven Spielberg says that Struzan is his favorite movie artist; George Lucas has called him the only collectible artist since World War II; and the Boston Globe called him the greatest poster artist of our day. Some of his most memorable paintings include posters for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Star Wars, the Indiana Jones series, the Back to the Future series, and the Muppet movies.
