Creative Mondays 20 – The Fifth Element Poster
“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
The Fifth Element has to be on my list of top 10 sci-fi flicks. There’s a great mix of comedy, drama, action and adventure with such a colourful cast and directed by the equally impressive Luc Besson who brings is fantastic style into the future! I couldn’t resist designing a poster and the all evil planet was the first thing on my mind. It has this all powerful presence with the feeling that nothing will get in it’s way. On the opposing side, the five elements being represented by the bright beams caught my eye on the previous posters and I decided to recreate this effect as a nod to the original. In the middle of this epic good vs. evil battle is Corben Dallas (Bruce Willis) and his taxi cab!
So much fun creating this piece, might get this one printed and see how she looks full size!
