There are enough similarities between the movies to make this a somewhat clever idea. The poster really only works *because* of the Kozik/D&C, in my opinion. I think that it's a mistake to think that Dye's trying to pull a fast one here. Though, given some of his past output, it's also kind of understandable.

Yep. Obvious homage.

Pre-orders now on 3 new Fast Times prints from our friends at Blunt Graffix. Don't really care for any of them, though.

The Fluorescent Edition of the poster on this thread is still available.

Looks like Dye will make some nice $$ off of this uncredited Kozik "homage".

Anytime he makes a poster someone should copy it right away and start selling them before him. I wonder if he would be annoyed with that idea since he basically does it to other artists.

I liked his 2001 print, too.

I have to admit, I am glad to have one of the 2001 prints but it is still just a screen of someone else's work. I would like to get my hands on the variant at some point though.


I bought the 2001 too. I understand it is a ripoff of the original. I am happy with the variant, love the way the colors change as you move across the room. I did have to pause and think about it when I purchased it. The metallics and split fountain made my decision for me.

I also agree that he needs to come up with his own ideas too.

A(n) homage IS credited almost by definition. Everybody who cares knows.

Than what would your definition of copycat be because I think I would love to know your response to that.
