This Is England covered by me

I covered the This Is England poster for the Ritzy 100 poster competition. (Prize: 50 tickets to see X-Men: First Class...)

I begun by pencilling a fairly faithful rendition of Woody's round up gang. Then I realised I was being bloody boring and so starting getting a bit "quirky" with the type.

Then I put some hilarious in-jokes that even I don't get into the winners wreaths and replaced the review snippets with quotes from the movie.

Then I coloured it in green and pink. The colours of a sure-fire winner, no doubt. (Click it to embiggen.)

I think I was being a bit literal in my interpretation of the brief ("Recreate a film poster in your own unique style.") The other entrants have all just created a brand new poster, which is much better (well, except for the minimalist ones).
