Max Max: Fury Road is an incredible visual spectacle, in which a beautiful landscape and some incredibly insane vehicles collide in a fireball of pure brilliance. But before it was a work of art, this movie was a collection of eye-popping drawings and paintings. In fact, there was no “screenplay” for Mad Max: Fury Road — just storyboards, and tons of concept art. There’s a reason that the cars in the film are the real stars of the show, and it’s because illustrator Peter Pound was already working on the designs 15 years ago. Comics artist Brendan McCarthy gets a co-writing credit on the film, and the narrative took shape as much through art as anything else. Some of this artwork stretches back to the late 1990s and early 2000s, showing just how long George Miller was trying to get this film off the ground.
