In Memory of John Alvin
John Alvin has illustrated some of the most recognized movie posters in the world, including BLADE RUNNER. John was an exceptionally gifted artist, he was one of America's finest living illustrators in the business and I was devastated when I heard the news of his passing.
Months ago, I forwarded John one of my BLADE RUNNER illustrations to personally thank him for providing me the inspiration to become an artist. It was an honour to receive his reply, complimenting my work... he was very gracious and kind to me, I'll always treasure that moment.
We'll miss you John - for your contribution to art, you influenced many artists, including myself.
This one's for you big guy.
