Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Pepsi Promo Standee 1989
Among the many pieces that Drew painted for the Pepsi Cola Last
campaign was this Standee. Drew painted it in four parts.
portraits were one painting, the castle, horses and background was
The shot of Indy riding is yet a separate painting and the scene of
and the boat another. When it was put together it was intended to make
a nice 3-D effect for the standee, each piece being printed, cut out
mounted on different levels. It was put together in many
ways, at varying scales for different applications. Drew had no
of controlling these applications of his work and some were therefor
successful than others. Any examples of this very fleeting
are rare and collectable.
As a side bar: As you find examples from this campaign you may actually also find some examples of the work of Drew's son. There was so much work to do on this project in such a short period of time, Drew's son painted many examples too. He, Christian, was working as an illustrator at the time but has since become a major art director in Hollywood advertising. Thereby avoiding any competition with the old man.
