Artists and fans all over the world have always asked me specific questions about my technique and how I do it. This DVD tells all.

Drew's career began in the early 70's illustrating nearly 100 classic album covers. BLACK SABBATH, SABBATH BLOODY SABBATH and Alice Cooper's WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE, voted one of the top 100 album covers of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine got the ball rolling. In a career that spanned over 40 years and produced more than 150 movie campaigns including INDIANA JONES, STAR WARS, HARRY POTTER, BACK TO THE FUTURE, E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, BLADE RUNNER, Drew developed his now-famous style of movie poster one-sheet art. This DVD presents a rare glimpse into Drew's process. It is the answer fans and professionals alike have been waiting for.

Drew says, "I'm retired now, so I have the time to share my insight with anyone who is creative or who's just curious to know my process and to have a glimpse into the movie business. Artists and fans all over the world have always asked me specific questions about my technique and how I do it. This DVD tells all."

Shot in his art studio, Drew provides an over-the-shoulder look at his pencil drawing, painting, and finish techniques as well as describing the thinking process that goes into the creation of the advertising art for the movies.

SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION director and screenwriter, Frank Darabont, says, "Watching Drew work, go step by step, that was a real treat. Seeing some of the things he does, some of his techniques and the results, made me exclaim out loud a few times. Drew's a magician and a genius. And yet his humility shines through. And his narration was excellent. Just loved it."

The response to the DVD has been phenomenal. Stephen Heigh, illustrator and Professor at Moore College of Art and Design says, "I think Drew is the only artist that has ever done such an in-depth sample as to how an artist works. I was already a big fan of his work, but this gives a whole new understanding into his artistic thought process and drawing skills. It's drawing at a whole new level in combining classical with invented contemporary skills."
