Was admiring the new poster on the way into the movie, and was delighted to be handed a copy as I left the theatre. I had the opportunity to meet at chat at length with Drew Struzan back in 98 ... your work is as excellent. Congratulations !
A great story to be sure and I'm glad you managed to grab a poster for yourself. I hope it brings back great memories..
Yes, Drew is a wonderful man and I'm privileged to know him. Certainly it was a daunting task to be asked to follow in his and Richard Amsel's footsteps and I hope that I managed to add some modest value to the Indy franchise...
Getting to bring home a mini-poster print of this piece after getting to see Raiders on IMAX last night was one of the best movie-going experiences I've ever had. I wish every time I saw a great movie, I'd get to bring home a high-quality memento, but what made this extra special was the fact that it I've always wanted an Indy poster that was worthy of hanging on my wall, and now I have one! This is one of the best pieces of Indy artwork ever created! Thanks Mark!!!
For a long time the list of truly great Indiana Jones poster artists consisted of just two names ... Richard Amsel and Drew Struzan. We can now add Mark Raats to that list. Truly amazing work. Here's hoping this piece will be made available as a print one day.
