Drew has from the early birth of Star Wars influenced the style of the iconic posters of the 80s and 90s.
This "circus poster" was Drew's introduction to the Star Wars universe, invited by artist Charles White, who originally got the job, because he didn't want to airbrush the portraits. Drew painted the actors in oils, in exchange for being able to watch and learn as Charlie painted the robots and vehicles with airbrush. The finished art ended up being too small to fit a credit block, but there was no time to reprint it, so the idea of making the finished poster look like it was adhered to a wall with addition art was used. The alteration helped make this George Lucas's favorite poster. The original painting was lost for 30 years, and when it finally resurfaced, Drew and Charlie gave it to Lucas as a gift. Stay with us all week for more Star Wars stories! (Drews words)
