The artist Mauro Balcalzar, who also created the logo for this site, designed this poster especially for the 30th Anniversary Event. He will be sharing a booth with us at the Expo at the NY Hilton Midtown. Be sure to come by TheLastDragonTribute.com booth early- with the number of Last Dragon fans that will be in the house and the limited number of prints made I doubt these will last long.
Here’s what Mauro had to say about the process of creating this exclusive piece: (quoted from his blog)
“Thanks to my friend Craig at The last Dragon Tribute site, I will be at the The last Dragon 30th anniversary reunion & screening of the film in NY Nov 8th. Since my original last Dragon poster was the 1st piece of art I drew, I wanted to make this 30th anniversary really special by designing a new art print for the show.
One of the challenges I had with creating this new piece was trying to re tell a story that I had done in my first Last Dragon poster. My style and art has changed vastly since my first attempt and I really wanted to re do the whole poster but doing so, wouldn’t be fair and a cop out. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to come up with a great way to show you how awesome this movie is.
Thankfully after a long night of sketches and pizza, I realized that the film in many ways resembled Bruce Lees’ Game of Death. For example, Bruce Leroy, much like Bruce lee, has to go through different levels of fighters until he reaches the big boss for his final test & fight. I wanted my layout to have this hierarchy to it, showing the minor henchmen all the way up to the big boss, Sho’nuff.
There was such a bevy of crazy oddball bad guys I could have drawn but I really wanted to include some of my favorites here. Really had fun bringing this to life and I hope I can share my love of this film with the fans of the film this Nov 8th to celebrate such an awesome film!
Thank you to all the fans of my 1st poster and for supporting what I do!
I want to thank Mauro for putting this together and for letting me use his original Last Dragon Poster as a logo. His art and positive energy is going to add even more magic to this already historic event! Thanks Mauro! Be sure to check out Mauro’s:
