Do you have a Netflix streaming account?
Go find the movie “Drew: The Man Behind the Poster”. It’s a documentary about artist Drew Struzan, the man who drew many of the iconic Star Wars and Indiana Jones posters, along with the first two Harry Potter posters.
If you have the time, you can watch the movie and enjoy the inspirational story.
If you don’t have time, fast forward (what is the digital term??) to about an hour and twenty seven minutes in (I think you should see George Lucas talking to Drew at this point about a Darth Maul painting).
ANYWAY right after that, they cut to a sign of Comic-Con and you see a bunch of fans wandering around.
AND THEN YOU SEE ME!!!!!!!!!
YES! Back in 2010 when I went to Comic-Con, I was standing by the Drew Struzan autograph table, trying to figure out when I could get the book signed and these guys came up to me and said they were doing a documentary on Drew Struzan and would I like to answer a few questions. Of COURSE I said yes, I LOVE Struzan’s work. So I fangirled for a bit, concentrating as hard as I could so I didn’t sound like a total dufus (which means I speak clearly but tend to make FACES). And then I sort of forgot about it because, hey, that was 2010 and who knows how many people think they are going to make documentaries while at Comic-Con.
But it turns out these guys did! And they used footage of me not once but TWICE at the end. AW YEAH!!!!!!!
Thank goodness for my friends in the DC Star Wars Collecting Club. I had no idea this was even out yet and then I went to the meeting on Sunday and they told me about it. 🙂
