This is the first parody of a series I am working on from the movie, "The Last Dragon."
This movie was definitely a staple of my childhood experience, and I am always interested to ask people if they have seen it. If so, they will usually quote a line (as there are many) from this memorable character, Sho'Nuff, played by Julius Carry.
Although the movie seemed to be a failed marketing scheme of Berry Gordy (producer), it was actually pretty well done...at least in my opinion. I am sure that I have some childhood nostalgia tied to that judgement. It just embodies so much of what I remember the eighty's to be. The fashion and styles, the music, and ninjas...if there was one movie that made me want to be a ninja more than anything, it was a tie between this and the American Ninja movies. Another thing I like about this movie is its tribute to one of my heroes, Bruce Lee.
What more could you ask for...an urban kung fu musical parody of Bruce Lee's likeness with a soundtrack by Motown Record greats such as Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson; plus, a cameo of a younger William H. Macy.
I highly recommend this movie, and I will be working on the next illustration from this series shortly.
