Where can I find a Style Wars movie poster?

Does anyone know where I can find a movie poster for the 1983 hip hop classic Style Wars? Online would be best but if there is anywhere in the Austin, TX area where I could get it that would work too.

I Googled "style wars poster" and not much came up (mostly a lot of Star Wars crap), but it made me think; why don't you try to get in touch with one of the artists from the movie to make you a custom one? Many of them are still around doing great artwork. I bet if you mailed one of them the right size sheet of paper in a tube they'd gladly return it to you with some original artwork. A lot of them like Cap, Mare, Daze, Dondi and Trap, are still making graffitti art. I recommend you start by checking out the followup film that was made by the same directors to see which ones you might have a chance at getting in touch with.

I don't think Style Wars was released in theaters. It first aired on PBS. See the customer reviews at Amazon.

If you go to the movie's web site, choose, "ABOUT", and then "Download Classic Images and Production Stills", you'll get a zip file with among other things, low-res images of three posters for the DVD re-release. So posters do exist (at least digitally).

The site also has a "shop", which seems to be closed right now. But maybe an email through the link on the site would dig up more info? Let us know what you find out.
