Drew Struzan Retires...

Postby CFKane on Fri Sep 05, 2008 3:19 pm

Very sad news....

Lots of times, I've liked his posters better than the movies they represented!

There's no way anyone will ever fill his shoes, but this guy's pretty good: Russell Walks

Anyway, Good Luck, Drew!

You can always count on Drew Struzan to class up a project with his posters. And without his name attached I don't think we'll see that kind of "modern art" anymore, so this does kind of suck. I guess that rant of Thomas Jane's in The Mist was kind of prophetic.

All of The Dark Knight's posters were pretty cool, but I'm partial to this one meself:

Drew's son is following in his father's footsteps from what I understand, so perhaps the style will live on...

Moriarty linked a great site in the chat room.


http://winedrinkingcritic.t35.com/



Someone has started composing a shitload of posters in order of their release dates.

Mostly the 70's right now.

77 is a great example.

Wonderful stuff.
Enjoy.

Looking at that list, I think all arguments that movies were better back in the day are out the window. That year sure had a lot of dumb looking movies! I don't think half that stuff would even be shown on late night cable! :lol:

I dunno.
I'd take the batshit crazy softcore over most of the so called comedies and romcoms of today.
You just KNOW that alot of those movies were awesomely bad on a scale that we just don't see the likes of which anymore.
Thank you, Zoners, for the kindness, tolerance, and enlightenment you've shared with me. It may not have been deserved, but it was greatly appreciated nonetheless. Soupy twist.

I'm working on the 1961 page right now. I've found quite a handful of good movies in the years I watched through. Yes, there were some bad movies, but I can't wait to finish the decade and know for sure.

That pic reminds me, here are a few images for the '60s movie The Trip by my favourite Japanese graphic artist, Tanadori Yokoo. Google Image search his name and expect to have your mind blown into art deco pieces.

I would actually not be surprised if Sepp also had a favorite Romanian woodblock printer, favorite Fijian neo impressionist painter, favorite Swahilian performance artist, etc...

When I was at Wondercon I saw this poster and instantly fell in love. Even though I hadn't seen the movie, I thought, "I must have it!" Of course my wallet shyness took over and I didn't get it but I plan on rectifying that via amazon.

I want it even more now that I've seen the movie and will forever have fond memories of a zombie wrestling a shark.

Everyone who knows anything about Romanian woodblock printing knows that the best examples were made anonymously hundreds of years ago. Out of the recent spat of Romanian wood printers, I'd probably have to go with Haralamb Belododia. He'd certainly give Dorè a run for his money.

And I'm delighted to see another Zoner show interest in Fijian Neo-Impressionism. Whilst the French were undoubtedly the masters, Fiji certainly made an impression in the field (pardon the pun). Ratu Tu'uakitau George Cokanauto, apart from founding Fiji's first fish and chip shop, also spent his free time painting masterpieces in the basement, innovatively mixing pigment with chip fat oil. Even the worst of his works is now worth thousands.

Swahilian performance art? I take it you mean Swahili...Swahilian is a made up word. But assuming your question was a serious one, I'm particularly taken by Endesha Mogadishu's most famous piece in which she traveled from Somalia to the Rovuma River, sweeping every street she passed by with an imaginary broom. This, she said, was a protest against the mistreatment of housemaids by Swedish Embassy employees. A true heroine of modern times!

And Zombi 2's definitely my favourite Italian zombie movie.

Really man you should start a Seppipedia site. It may sound like an infectious disease, but it it is actually a fountain of obscure knowledge.

And I will have you know, when I said "Swahilian" I was not in fact referring to the lingua franca of East Africa, but to the several deviant sexual acts that, with a proper audience, could be qualified as a form of performance art, as was documented in the following description of the Swahilian helicopter: "I was totally bustin' a swahilian helicopter last night with Chief Wanfa Subi, and he got sick as well as my wiener twisting into a meaty twizzler."
