I was fortunate enough to have an email conversation will legendary film poster artist Drew Struzan this week. I’ve always been a huge admirer of his work, so it was a real buzz to hear back from him. I’d initially contacted him to do an interview about his poster work on Raiders. However, he was unable to, due to a busy schedule. He started his reply with an enthusiastic response to having watched Part 1:
“Good for you and for us!
As far as my interview, I am way too busy, pressed on every side. I regret being in a position unable to give you the time to participate in your doc.
Please have a great time working on the film and all best wishes to you….drew”.
We had a couple of emails to and fro and then I left him to get on with his work.
That’s really neat that you heard back from him, though! He’s one of my favorite artists, and it’s so exciting that he responded to you. Congrats!
