I have THE LOST BOYS OS, too, T.

Always wondered, when Alvin is credited here, as this is a photo-montage poster. Did he maybe do the photography? Or the design of the layout?

1994 15th anniversary ALIEN one-sheet illustrated by Alvin.
This is an internet image. The original has a white border.

Again, another internet image.
Mine is folded (and unused) but has been flattened for over 20 years.
Art, of course by Alvin.

My pleasure, T.
I'm sure some of these other rascals will kick in sometime soon.

I was flipping thru the bay and found this listed. Alvin also did this 1976 poster for the Los Angeles Film Exposition (Filmex '76). It measures about 13.5 x 40 inches.

Seems Alvin was asked to do a design/designs for The Lost Boys but the concepts were rejected. Here is one unused design of his:
