The special features on the DVD of "The Mist" includes a feature on Drew Struzan, who painted the picture (that references Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series) used as a prop painting created by Thomas Jane's character. Very talented artist.

Wow...just wow. I never realized all those movie posters were done by the same man. I've even had them on my wall. He could quite easily have the most recognized artworks in the world, yet no one knows his name. Amazing.
