The Chimp Pool
Well, here's how the final poster came out for the show. To see the original poster and all the details for Gallery 1988's "Now Playing" show, check the last post.
Ultimately, the concept for this collab poster turned into this: What if they did one more Dirty Harry movie, and ended up using Clyde, from 'Any Which Way But Loose', as Harry's partner? It would be the ultimate Cop/Buddy flick.
Also, not sure if you can see it, but in the credits I added a cheesy tag line that says, "This DIRTY HARRY just got HAIRIER!
Of course Scorpio, from the first Dirty Harry would come back from the dead and start killing chimps, instead of people. The writing scrawled next to his face in the above pic is taken right from the note he wrote in the first movie. I just added monkey names in the note in place of the people he was threatening to kill.
It seemed pretty fitting to jam on a movie poster that takes place in San Francisco, which is the same city, of the gallery, that is hosting the show tonight.
Anyway, this was a really fun group show to be a part of. They already have all the movie poster entries from the artists online. Here's the linkage.
