Drew Struzan!!!

The wife and I went to a gallery opening for Drew Struzan last night. Here's a picture of us with the man himself. Drew's work is probably the most recognizable illustration of our day. He's done thousands of posters for everything from Star Wars to Harry Potter during his almost 40 year career. It was a rare opportunity to see some of his original work up close and more than that - to meet the artist himself. His art is breathtaking and really can't be appreciated unless seen up close. He was a very gracious and humble host. I enjoyed talking with him and telling him about the time when I was 13 and saw his work for the first time at an art show he had at the San Bernardino Library. It was also fun to hear about his experience living in Lake Arrowhead as well. Thanks Drew! If you're in the area visit Gallery Nucleus February 13, 2009 - March 2, 2009.
