Drive is a one of a kind movie. It is elegant in it's style with hidden emotions that run deep. It is an Action, Thriller, Drama and Neo-Noir movie, combining multiple genres into an unforgettable movie that has become a modern classic!

"Solve The Composition"
Pictured above is the final sketch. The sketch went through several revisions that involved additional characters, different cars and character poses.
I wanted to include all of the main characters with this artwork. Going about the process of clearing every likeness was daunting, but I knew it would be worth it for this special project.
"Solve The Color Pallet"
Paul and I decided to do two color roughs to capture two different looks for the movie. The blue was the first completed. I wanted to bring more of the purple/pink into the mix with the second color rough, but still really loved this design. Ultimately we ended up using it as the basis for our variant poster.
The second color rough really popped with the purple/pink and black. I knew this was going to be the design and colors that I wanted, but couldn't shake the first colors. So we decided to do the blue color rough as a variant.
"Paint With Heart"
This is the Final Painting, before being scanned. Paul did an amazing job with the painting! After scanning the art, text was added by the talented Christopher Cox, and the colors were carefully separated by the amazing Saniose for printing at DL Screenprinting.
