Inspiration: The Thing by Drew Struzan

The Thing movie poster

In 1982, Drew Struzan received a panicked phone call from someone at Universal Pictures saying they needed a movie poster created for The Thing, due the following morning. Struzan launched into action, had his wife snap some photos of himself wearing a parka and stayed up the entire night to paint.

Even with the ridiculous deadline, Struzan managed to pull off a piece of brilliance with this poster.

  1. If you are a Drew fan, you must check out his late 70s record covers.
    He has an amazing futuristic style, unlike the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future posters he created later in his career.
