Back to the Future Poster and Variant

We’ve always been big fans of the Back to the Future franchise and hoped to someday have the opportunity to illustrate the iconic DeLorean from the film. Thanks to Mondo, that dream came true in the form of both vinyl packaging and now two ultra large 36” x 24" limited edition screen prints. 

The art itself is inspired in many ways by the depictions of the DeLorean that came before it. We knew that a profile view of the car has been interpreted by countless artists in many beautiful ways, so our goal was to create a new take on this viewpoint by zeroing in on the detail of the time machine, both exterior and interior through the open gull-wing doors, all while having fun with including a few easter eggs. Creating the main edition of the poster in a neon 80’s color palette was a must, but just in case it wasn’t colorful enough, we created the variant edition on rainbow foil for an extra shimmery effect.

Each posters is a 36” x 24” four color screen print. The main artist edition of 60 prints is signed and numbered by DKNG on 100 lb. white cover stock. The variant has a super limited edition of 35 and is printed on 10pt metallic rainbow foil. Both prints are available in the DKNG Store on Monday, January 7, at 10am PST. Limit one of each poster per customer, these prints are limited editions that will not be reprinted. Check out close up photos of the finished prints below.

DKNG on Episode 167 of Adventures In Design

Dan Kuhlken of DKNG is on another episode of Adventures In Design today. We play the Summer Movie Game Entertainment Weekly where Dan goes up against film/tv gurus Sean Mort and Mark Brickey. The stakes are high, valued at $300 per person to be exact, and we bet on this summer’s box office grosses.

Things get a bit more serious in the Circle Of Trust, where we talk about our mutual love for Squarespace and the street artist Space Invader.
