    Police Academy 3: Back in Training by Drew Struzan (Warner Bros., 1986). Near Mint/Mint. Signed Original Mixed Media Concept Artwork on Illustration Board (20" X 30").
    In addition to his famous work on posters for film franchises including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Back to the Future, prolific poster artist Drew Struzan created the poster artwork for the first four Police Academy movies. Offered here as a Heritage first is the original concept artwork for Police Academy 3: Back in Training. Created in acrylic and colored pencil, this concept artwork features many elements seen in the final version used for the U.S. one sheet (including Hightower in a wig and Tackleberry ready for war), but with a different and more compact composition. The piece shows no discernable issues in the image, and the board has just a few smudges and minimal edge wear. There is an official stamp from Drew Struzan Illustration just below the image, and on the verso is an official sticker and a stamp dated January 8, 1986. The piece is signed by Struzan in the bottom right corner of the image.
