About this project
A giant print illustrating 100 years of Aviation in Film. Through 66 intricately detailed hand-illustrations, we’ve charted the iconic aircrafts of film from 1903 to the modern day. From the early 1900s Wright Flyer to the Tomcat in Top Gun - we have it all covered.
Six months ago, I've designed a print named The Filmography of Cars which charted the iconic cars of Film and Television. People dug it, so much so that they started asking if I could do a version related to aircrafts and film. So I listened, and over the past 4 months I've researched, sketched, and slowly crafted this into what you see in this project.
I spent hours, and yes sometimes even days, on each aircraft, meticulously crafting each detail. Each aircraft was sketched by hand before being converted to a digital illustration. By drawing each plane at large size (approx 10” x 18”), I was able to get the detail I wanted in which I feel comes across in the small scale.
(I even researched the tail number from the corresponding film and added it to the illustrations where possible.)
The Collector's Book is a hardcover, full-color reference guide containing all 66 plane illustrations and images of original sketches. It includes additional information not available on prints.
Each print will be signed and numbered by me. It will also come with an original Kickstarter Backer Certificate that will be signed and numbered according to your print.
We did it!
Risks and challenges
The prints will be printed on 24" X 36" 100lb archival recycled cover stock in Red Hook, Brooklyn with organic archival quality inks. The amount I'm asking for covers the set-up and printing costs for 750 copies of the poster as well as the custom packaging and mailing of each poster.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
