Harlem Nights
November 1989

Apparently Eddie Murphy liked Drew's work or someone up there liked what Drew did with Eddie's posters.  At any rate, Drew got to do this next Eddie Murphy vehicle because of the success of the 'Coming to America' poster.  Drew had fun doing this for him, going out of his way to do more work than was necessary.  Drew had done some two dozen drawings but then did a couple beautiful full color, half size paintings for consideration.  He then did three full size paintings for them to decide upon.  In the end he had done so well that this one they chose was only one of the comprehensive ideas.  He only tightened up the painting a little bit and they used this comp. as the finished poster.
