SAD NEWS, I REALLY ADMIRE HIS BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED POSTERS. HE MIGHT BE ONE OF THE LAST OF HIS KIND.

One of my favorites too, it's amazing how many recognizable posters he created over the years in his unique painterly style. Definitely one of the last of his kind.

Wasn't it Drew Struzan who did Star Wars and Raiders? Or did they both do different versions?
