Drew Struzan


Poster and Freelance Painter


Drew Struzan defined a distinctive, hand-made look for official Star Wars posters between the original Star Wars films through to the Special Editions and the Prequels. His caliber is such that movie studios and George Lucas mostly support his artistic decisions, rather than being dictated to for just commissions.

His first work to include Boba Fett was the Return of the Jedi: Special Edition poster, in which he included the bounty hunter on the bottom right of the poster.

In 1997, he was hired to paint the cover for "Shadows of the Empire."

Later, he painted Fett -- Jango Fett -- for the Attack of the Clones, in which the bounty hunter is featured very large on the theatrical poster.

His last work to include Boba Fett was a limited edition Star Wars series for the United States Postal Service (USPS). The series commemorated the 30th anniversary of Stat Wars and Boba Fett was on his very own stamp.

Currently, Struzan is officially retired and doing his own artwork.
