Max has walked out of the wastelands once again and brought the apocalyptic action back to the big screen, and audiences are simply mad about Max!
Those who have seen the latest movie will tell you that the costuming is amazing, the cars are incredibly cool, and the sets/backgrounds are stunning to behold on the big screen, but before all these apocalyptic elements were made real they were part of a concept artist’s workbook.
Concept art was such an integral part of Fury Road that illustrator Brendan McCarthy received a co-writing credit for his work on the film, which is only fitting considering he didn't even have a finished script to work from when he came up with these amazing designs.
Brendan's incredibly cool concept art is collected in the new book The Art Of Mad Max: Fury Road, released by Titan Books.
It's rare to see a concept artist play such an integral role in the overall development of a feature film, but in the stylized world of Mad Max it actually makes sense to build the storyline around the art.
