Week one-ten of Operation Graphite – theme: Mad Max.

Shock - Feral Child

Perhaps the idea existed earlier in literature, but nothing really ignited the idea of Post Apocalyptic, Neo Tribal, Wasteland Bandit quite like the Mad Max films. And lets be honest, while all of them are entertaining, its the second in the series, that is a rare and almost perfect film. No other film I can think of really fits the term, Art house Action movie, like The Road Warrior. The open road never felt so desolate and the adversaries never seemd so bizarrely terrifying as in that film.

Shock – Feral Child


The theme selected for week one-ten of Operation Graphite will be: Mad Max.

Road Warrior mohawk

Every year, there is a little Mad Max inspired gathering in the desert. The Wasteland Weekend is kind of a mini Burning man for Road Warrior wannabes. Perhaps it didn’t start the Diesel Punk genre, but Mad Max and it’s sequels certainly became the defining trilogy, and soon to be a Reboot with Tom Hardy.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Mad Max.

All art work is due on Thursday, 4.10.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 4.11.13
