Cool Illustrations Of Cult-Movie Classics

1
Fantasize some of the most famous movie and TV characters to emerge from the last fifty years, and isolate them with their trademark vehicles. That’s exactly what French graphic designer, Mainger Germain, has been working on. Entitled Cinema Driver, Mainger’s latest work brings together some of cinema’s recognisably lovable heroes, heroines and villains in a gorgeous retro-aesthetic.

From The Big Lebowski’s The Dude, to Kill Bill’s Mia Wallace, to Breaking Bad’s infamous RV, there are 52 images that complete the series. We can imagine them being dealt out as in a card game, where you play to guess the movie, the characters, and the vehicle. Alternatively, simply as cool prints they can bring great pleasure to the eye, and a grin to the face.

Having featured Mainger before, it’s clear that he’s paving a stylistic trajectory for himself. From Cine Hipsters to Cinema Driver, his love for cult cinema is marked and distinctive.

We caught up with him to find out more:

The Plus: What inspired Cinema Driver?
Mainger Germain:
There are many famous vehicles in movies so I wanted to draw them with their owners.

TP: Are all the designs from movies that you love?
MG:
Absolutely, yes. I received some message asking me, “where is the Chevrolet Camaro from Transformers, Fast & Furious, etc.” But I do not like these kind of movies.

TP: So which kind of movies do you like?
MG:
I sleep Sci-fi, I eat Sci-fi, the science-fiction is my main inspiration and the movie from the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s.

TP: Which design is your favourite?
MG:
I love the bus from Into The Wild, Batman 66, Akira, the van from Lost, and Biff Tannen’s BMW (from Back To The Future) is particularly cool!

TP: What was your creative process?
MG:
It’s simple. I look for the film, the model of the vehicle and I draw on illustrator.

TP: What do you love about graphic design?
MG:
I like to draw what I want, and drawing is a means of completely free expression.
