Aladdin poster- original color comp by John Alvin #2
Aladdin poster original color comps go from simple and less color to nearly finished, as the folks at Disney wanted to see every version. This is one of our favorites, because the color seems so vibrant.
The new book The Art of John Alvin by his wife Andrea Alvin released by Titan Books is, we hope, the first of several books that will show his importance to the history of film.
ABOUT JOHN ALVIN:
"Creating the promise of a great experience" is how John Alvin described his role as the preeminent designer and illustrator of cinema art in the entertainment industry. In a business where you are only as good as your last job, Alvin was diverse enough in style and creative invention to be one of the ultimate go-to artist for movie posters in Hollywood for over two decades. He designed and illustrated some of the world's most widely recognizable movie art. From E.T. to Blade Runner, to Blazing Saddles and The Lion King, John Alvin is responsible for many of your favorite movie campaign images...
Of course Disney really favored John Alvin, especially for their adult campaigns for animated movies. He worked on and completed finishes for The Little Mermaid, Pinocchio rerelease, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and many others.
