Today, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road (from Titan Books) went on sale, and the film’s instantly huge fan base is likely drooling over chance to flip through 176 pages of sketches and paintings that defined the look of the film. Some of the images in this hardcover tome—perhaps most of them—are bound to be the creations of Brendan McCarthy, who began working ideas for MMFR at least 18 years ago. He’s posted a selection of them to his website ArtBrendan.com. His description reads, in part:

Featured here are some of my early concept images. You’ll see a lot of my design philosophy and original creations for the movie; from The Buzzards (the buzz-saw wielding spiked vehicles), the Pole Cats (boarding marauders on poles), the whole ‘retro hotrod’ look of the Armada and some character designs.

Note the date on these sketches and paintings: 1997. That makes them at least 17 years old—that’s some stick-to-itiveness there. We don’t know which, or how many, of these were selected for the book, but they’re all great:
