One-Sheet style, concept artwork by Vic Fair for the John Badham sci-fi film "Short Circuit" (1986). The finished One-Sheet poster utilised the John Alvin artwork for the American and British marketing campaigns, so it appears as if Fair was asked to experiment. However, ultimately it was the Alvin design that was preferred. It is a moot point as to which creation has more impact. The artwork is presented on layout paper affixed to board, with the media being a mix of watercolour, ink and magic marker.

(artwork): 24" x 16.5" 61.5 x 42 cm; (board): 32" x 22" (81.5 x 56 cm)

Additional Information: Artwork on layout paper affixed to board with the media being a mix of watercolour, ink and magic marker.
