John Alvin Art Show

September 15, 2006posterwireIllustration, News1

Movie poster illustrator John Alvin (who illustrated the Blade Runner and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial movie posters among others) will be making an appearance this weekend at his one-man art show at the ArtInsights gallery in Reston Virginia.

While the art gallery will not be highlighting John Alvin’s past movie poster illustrations, the show will feature his recent licensed movie illustrations work, which are part of Alvin’s effort to “re-branded himself as a ‘cinema artist’, creating studio-licensed, actor-approved prints drawn from popular films.” We can appreciate this rebranding, as the market for traditional movie poster illustrators doesn’t really exist anymore, which everyone seems to have an opinion about.
