Famed Japanese artist, most famous for producing posters for movie hits of the 1970's.

Born in 1935, his prodigious attention to detail got him hired first as an assistant manga illustrator. In the west he's best known for his amazing Star Wars posters. Self portrait here. Died on October 27th, 2015.

Film projects Noriyoshi has illustrated for:

  • Posters for the Godzilla series starting with The Return of Godzilla in 1984, spanning the entire Heisei series and produced several Millennium series posters.
