“There’s no such thing as a pure angle or composition, any more than there is such a thing as a pure performance; the life of the creators are embodied in all the actions that bring a movie into being. And those habits of body are no mere accidents of upbringing but the very essence of a zeitgeist, of the spirit of the time as it manifests itself.”
Guillermo Del Toro commissioned legendary poster artist Drew Struzan to do this poster design for Pan’s Labyrinth. The movie studio ultimately refused to use the poster and opted for a more generic photoshopped design in lieu of Struzan’s hand painted work.
Struzan is well known for his iconic posters for the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films.
