O.K. first thing first, I fucked up the oars…totally wrong direction on the right side. That needs to be corrected digitally. This is part 4 of the fake 1980s sports movie poster. After posting Wilfred Brimely, Mackenzie Davis and Mary Stewart Masterson, this is the only element that will appear multiple times on the poster. More home works need to be done with studying how they row.

Mary Stewart Masterson in Some kind of Wonderful

So here is the third piece of the puzzle, modeling pretty much after Mary Stewart Masterson in the movie Some Kind of Wonderful. She will appear on the upper left side of the poster panel. A tomboy with dream of rowing in an all men college crew….or something close to that as the movie plot of my fake movie poster. More to come.

I have been telling everybody about San Junipero, the Black Mirror series episode on Netflix after I watched 3 times over the Thanksgiving break. In my very very amateur and humble opinion: it is the best written teleplay of the year, as well as the best acted hour long drama this year. “Love is Love” seems to be the “IT Phrase” going around right now, and this particular episode captured that perfectly, no matter your age, gender, sexual orientation…Love is love. 

Anyway, I am borrowing the character of Yorkie, one  of the two main character from that episode, played by the wonderful Mackenzie Davis as the second part of my make 1980 movie poster illustration. We got Wilfred yesterday, and now we got Mackenzie, just a few more pieces and lets see if I can pull this off. 

Please do go and watch San Junipero.

Am I using the likeness of Wilford Brimley because I just saw John Woo’s Hard Target again on the big screen? (Thank you Justin) Did I get the concept of creating a 80’s movie poster due to my repeated watching of the San Junipero episode of Black Mirror over the Thanksgiving weekend? Absolutely! Is this drawing merely a small chunk of a larger puzzle, you bet! Stay Tuned, more to come.
