This started out as another one of my papercraft projects, but I had to pull the plug because Vigo was too difficult to cut and place into position. The goal was to create a “living painting”, much like there was in the film, with Vigo and the foreground floating above the backdrop. His eyes would’ve followed you around the room.
As you know I do replicas of posters seen in film and television, and my newest entry is a tribute to one of my all-time favorite films, Diggstown (1992). It’s a clean and simple design, the only change I made was to the beer sponsor; it says Millen but if you squint it looks like Miller.
If you haven’t seen Diggstown, it’s a fun popcorn film worth checking out. Yeah it has the production value of a TV-movie, and a few cheesy scenes, but the good far outweighs the bad.
Sorry for the lack of updates lately! I’m still busy in my other blog, feel free to swing by. I hope to have some new stuff posted here soon, stay tuned.
I have added a second poster to my Zazzle store by popular demand: the All Valley Tournament one-sheet seen in The Karate Kid. Please click here or the image to go to the listing.
Zazzle has more size options and is friendlier for international shipping. That said you can still find this print on Imagekind, which usually has more promotions and has great pricing and service for North American customers.
I’ll be adding more of my pop culture prints to Zazzle in the coming weeks. My maps, which are based on North American cities, will remain exclusive to Imagekind.
You can purchase a high-res poster of this image here (or click the image).
Not sure why I love to do replica art these days. Maybe it’s because I like the notion of having a souvenir from a film on my wall. And because I’m all about products here, I can at least craft these for people to acquire.
I love to make stuff that people can print. It’s a weird consolation prize for not being able to deliver any actual products I feature here. At the same time it’s stuff that I enjoy printing myself, so a win-win situation all round.
Please post these responsibly, because they have the potential to get me in hot water if used in a way that is considered vandalism. I’m always a Google search away from law enforcement authorities, apparently. Don’t shoot any rabbits or ducks either.
