the office poster

Time to officially reveal my tribute to the greatest movie ever made: Threat Level Midnight! I wanted to create some art celebrating The Office and this was a good place to start, haha.

I’ll be getting some 18 x 24in poster prints made soon. I’ll hopefully have those available for purchase towards the end of the month!

This was painted in Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq. Typography was added in Illustrator.

Someone give me seventeen-year-old Yakov Feltsman at the 1964 Olympics wearing bell-bottoms and a peasant shirt with a scarf around his head, hair cut into a moptop and skating to The Twist. He landed the first triple flip in competition and, in an interview, announced that his inspiration was the most beautiful girl he’d ever met, his girlfriend of three weeks Lilia Baranovskaya.

Yakov’s coach is banging his head against a wall somewhere just off camera.

Forty years later and Viktor Nikiforov, he of the fae-like looks and waist-length silver hair, wants to wear a bondage costume on the ice and Yakov can’t even tell him not to because when he tries Viktor starts screaming “COME ON BABY LET’S DO THE TWIST” and Yakov is immediately paralyzed with shame.

“I mean, really, you have no room to talk,” Lilia tells him, examining her nails as Viktor announces that he’s engaged to a skater he’s barely known for eight months. Who he’s still actively coaching.

Yuri shows up in his exhibition skate outfit and doesn’t even wait for Yakov to open his mouth before he’s holding up a picture–an actual printed picture where did he find it–in full color of Yakov on the podium at the 1964 Olympics.

“Bell bottoms, old man?” he says, flipping his hair as he skates onto the ice.

(Lilia frames the picture. It hangs in her office underneath a laminated poster reading “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”)

Things I wish people who come in to the animal shelter understood

This is a Husky:

Pointy ears, thick but medium fur, tail often curls upward but not in a spiral/tight curl. Often has mask-like pattern on face, saddle-like pattern on back. Round but long muzzle. Might top out at 60 lbs. Coat is soft and fluffy, but not too long. Often has blue eyes.

This is a Malamute:

Enormous hulking beast with long fur, squinty dark eyes, tiny ears in comparison to its head and body, and a tightly curled tail. Pointy snoot. Weighs closer to 100 lbs. Coat is coarse.

This is a Shiba Inu:

Doge dog. May have this color variation similar to a Husky, but is very small- maybe 20lbs at best. Dainty little body, pointy nose, round but standing-up ears. Tightly curled tail that almost always shows you the underside. Looks like an oddly-colored fox.

Bonus– This is a White German Shepherd:

Square muzzle, short but thick fur, giant bat ears, and shaped like a normal German Shepherd. 50-75ish lbs. No tail curl. Hind legs slope back, butt may slope downward. Not a Winter Breed, not closely related to Huskies. Is not a Husky. Just because it’s white doesn’t mean it’s a sled dog.


You wouldn’t believe how many people come in looking for their lost Malamute only to have it be a Husky. (So of course we informed you over the phone that we don’t have a Malamute in Stray, this dog is NOT a Malamute.) Or people who think they have a Husky who actually have a White Shepherd, and vice versa. Or we had people surrendered their “Husky”, but it’s actually a Shiba Inu (probably pure bred Shiba, tbh).

It makes it a lot easier for us to help get your pup home to you if you know what kind of dog you actually have. If in doubt, ask a groomer, because they will definitely know.

ᴄʟᴜsᴛᴇʀ ᴜᴘᴅᴀᴛᴇ + ɴᴇᴡ sᴛʀᴀᴛᴇɢʏ.

After an hour spent discussing anything we saw as relevant with Netflix, this is the outcome of the situation:

Netflix accepts our help in the promotion of Sense8.

It was stated that Netflix will only commence to promote the special once the release date is closer.

However they would be delighted if until then we could continue with our campaign.

We have the green light to organise billboards, and any type of promotion as long as we don’t make any profit from it. Billboards however are out of questions for us fans because the costs are too high, however we can organise flyers and distribute those. Or those paper posters you can stick to walls for everyone to see.

Viewership is very important. Rewatching the show definitely counts however she refused to give me a number. Netflix doesn’t, under any circumstances, release this type of data and there she was very clear. (This is no news but we are including ANYTHING that was discussed just not to leave any kind of plot hole or unanswered questions.)

Regarding season renewal she said there is no talk about this at the moment, which we all were aware about.

I asked her IF we organised numbers, meaning old members back and new members in if Netflix would agree to a renewal.

She said it’s possible. I asked if it was possible to receive those words in an official statement coming directly from the Netflix page for our Cluster to read.

She didn’t want to say much on it and kept going around her words and was afraid to say too much, but what she kept making clear is “Feedback is what makes the decisions”.

So we have to organise email days in which we contact all the people above the customer service. Reed Hastings and all chiefs executive and whoever is above. Those emails need to be focused on Netflix making a statement regarding them being open to negotiations.

One of the @Global_Cluster representative is working on writing templates that we can all use as it is VITAL to stick to the script and not go off topic.

She said numbers are the alpha and omega of Netflix.
So we HAVE to bring back our subscriptions but also bring in new people.

——

Merchandise. We’ll be getting DVDs 100%. They just don’t have a release date but she told me to sit tight and I said we won’t. 😂

She said Orange is the New Black as well as House of Cards have their DVDs already so she doesn’t see why we shouldn’t be getting Sense8 ones.

Regarding comic con well there wasn’t much to say about it because they have nothing to do with the organisation so it’s yet again all up to us.

𝐅𝐄𝐄𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐆𝐎𝐎𝐃 𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐉𝐄𝐂𝐓:

The feeling good project comes in different stages. The first stage is focused on bringing back our subscriptions back in masses.

ɪᴍᴘᴏʀᴛᴀɴᴛ ɪs ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴀғᴛᴇʀ ᴏᴜʀ sᴜʙsᴄʀɪᴘᴛɪᴏɴ ʀᴇɴᴇᴡᴀʟ ᴀʟʟ ᴏғ ᴜs ᴡɪʟʟ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴄᴏɴᴛᴀᴄᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ᴄᴜsᴛᴏᴍᴇʀ sᴇʀᴠɪᴄᴇ ᴛʜʀᴏᴜɢʜ ᴛʜᴇ ʟɪᴠᴇ ᴄʜᴀᴛ ᴛᴏ ɪɴғᴏʀᴍ ɴᴇᴛғʟɪx ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴡᴇ ᴀʀᴇ ʀᴇɴᴇᴡɪɴɢ ᴏᴜʀ sᴜʙsᴄʀɪᴘᴛɪᴏɴs ʙᴇᴄᴀᴜsᴇ ᴏғ sᴇɴsᴇ8, ᴛʜᴇʏ ɴᴇᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ᴋɴᴏᴡ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴡᴇ ᴀʀᴇ ʙᴇʜɪɴᴅ ᴛʜɪs ᴀɴᴅ ɴᴏ ᴏɴᴇ ᴇʟsᴇ.

The second stage of the Feeling Good Project consists in promotion: As we mentioned above, billboards are way too expensive but we can organise groups in each city that can print in colours some flyers to give around and maybe stick posters to walls like the ones you see for concerts or local festival, any kind of visibility is great.

We should also contact conventions other than SDCC and see if there’s still time for them to make a Sense8 panel happen. More on this later.

The third stage of the Feeling Good Project is focused on rewatch parties. We will organise a schedule to mass rewatch Season 2 all together and live tweet, so we will bring views as well as attract more attention towards the show.

#Sense8Rewatch it’s the hashtag we will follow during the live tweets.

The fourth stage of the Feeling Good Project consists in getting the FunkoPop industry to produce the Sense8 Cluster for us. A banner has already been created and we’ll be posting it in due time.

The FINAL and second most important stage of the Feeling Good Project consists in a rally.

We need to organise PACIFIC rallies in front of the most important Netflix offices which are in Amsterdam, Paraiso, Tokyo, Seoul and Los Gatos. We require the help of the locals to organise those.

The rally will only consist on people standing outside the Netflix offices with Banners, posters and anything requesting a season renewal.

—————–

We will be organising everything for you with specific dates so please for now this is all you need to know, trust us we are working hard to get you the best results.

With love, your Global Cluster.
