Dragon Princess Dragon and Knights – original production color concept art (Copy)
Dragon Princess Dragon and Knights is an original mixed media illustration for a children's story that John was working on. John Alvin was an incredible and innovative artist. His great talent for visual story telling allowed him to develop an incredible body of work, thus working on projects for everyone. But John wanted to tell the story of his own heros and heroines, so he decided to write and illustrate his own children's story. He had always loved dragons and so he began bringing the fantasy of a princess and her dragon to life.
"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...
