John Alvin 1948-2008

We were saddened to hear of John Alvin's passing yesterday. John's movie posters were very well known, even if his name was not. I had the pleasure of first meeting John at one of Stan's shows where John and Ralph McQuarrie were the guests of honor. When we saw him last summer at the Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angeles, the seeds were planted for a book of John's art from dreams & visions press.

If you attended the Blade Runner/Alien movie party you may recall seeing John discuss his original poster artwork for Blade Runner.

Through his work, John has achieved immortality. Here are just a few reminders why he will never be forgotten.
