You know the guy who painted (yes painted) all these posters?
His name was John Alvin, and he passed away several days ago.
Can you even imagine being responsible for so many iconic images? It's like he was a vital part of the pop-culture zeitgeist of the 1980s and early 90s.
And yet his name isn't that well-known -- he was just, at least to the public, an anonymous movie poster illustrator.
Food for thought...
