1. About Noriyoshi Ohrai

Japanese Illustrator Noriyoshi Ohrai has designed some of the most iconic movie and game poster art in the world. Although working as an illustrator from 1962, Noriyoshi got his first big break when, at the age of 45, George Lucas saw one of his Star Wars “fan art” pieces in a magazine and invited Noriyoshi to create some official Star Wars Art

Aside from his work with the Star Wars franchise, and perhaps even more iconic work in Japan on the Godzilla films, Noriyoshi created many designs for games throughout the 1990s into the 2000s. This work included many works for the Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid games.
