Thought Bubble 2014: BACK TO THE FUTURE by Matt Taylor

We’re heading to Thought Bubble this weekend! TB is one of our very favorite conventions run by some incredibly cool people, and we always look forward to making it back to Leeds. We’ll be at Table #15 inside the TB TeePee located between New Dock Hall and Royal Armouries Hall. 

Back to the Future by Matt Taylor
18" X 24" Edition of 225

This year we're teaming up with Matt Taylor (who will also be in attendance) to release a vibrant take on Back to the Future featuring Marty McFly on lead guitar.

Here's what Matt had to say about the poster:

BTTF is basically my dream project and as such is utterly terrifying, because it is embedded in the public consciousness and has it’s own library of iconography that even people who haven’t seen the film will know. On top of that, the previous BTTF series at Mondo are amongst the highlights of their output - so a little bit of extra pressure to live up to there.

For my design, I went back to Struzan’s original concept posters - there is a great one with Marty vanishing from the feet up, and as soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use it as my starting point. I think PCC and Laurent have closed the book on using the Delorean so I deliberately stayed away from that and focused instead on Marty and his instantly recognisable features. I used the title block from the original poster and stripped out the rest of the type so that the image stood alone on the page. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I hope that the Mondo faithful dig it as well.
