Comic-Con@Home 2020: Masters of the Illustrated Film Poster, with Struzan, Shipper and Hildebrandt

For kids of the 70’s and 80’s, illustrated movie art was as common as novel adaptations and comic book tie-ins, but as with those much-loved releases it’s become something of a lost art, and that is celebrated in this Comic-Con@Home panel, of particular interest to GFFA fans for the presence of Paul Shipper, Drew Struzan and Greg Hildebrandt.

The history of the illustrated movie poster can be tied into the history of art itself, the panelists have expressed that they have ‘learned from the masters’ and that ‘we all stand on the shoulders of giants.’ This year we welcome artist Paul Shipper (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) as host to the ASIFA Hollywood panel featuring artists Steve Chorney (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), James Goodridge (Deadpool, Alita Battle Angel), Greg Hildebrandt (Star Wars), Rory Kurtz (The Graduate, Baby Driver), Robert Rodriguez (The Jewel of the Nile, City Slickers II), Akiko Stehrenberger (Girl on Fire, The Last Black Man in San Francisco), William Stout (Wizards, Life of Brian) and Drew Struzan (Hook, Back to the Future).

For more from Greg listen to Making Tracks, where we discussed his process and career.
