Signalnoise for FITC Toronto: 10 years

I was asked by the awesome folks behind FITC to participate in a special “10 Year Anniversary” mini poster set that will be available to purchase at the event. They selected 10 artists who spoke previously at FITC to design original pieces based around the idea of “10″ or “10 years”. Outside of that, we had complete control over what we wanted to create which is always fun. Here are a few behind-the-scenes vectors.

I’ve wanted to do some kind of a Back To The Future piece for a long time, and given that this project was referencing time to some degree, I fired up the Flux Capacitor and got to it. This also ties into the talk I will be doing at FITC, lovingly titled Back To The Future: Part II which I’ll be doing on May 2nd (11:15am) in Toronto. I’ll also be sitting on a panel called Source + Imagination on May 4th. I’ll be posting more about the FITC events really soon.

Now if you don’t mind, I have some Huey Lewis to listen to.

  1. I see 3D tracing, offset paths, LIGHTNING, Truck Stops, Clouds.

    Classic Signalnoise Style = Awesome! :D

  2. I think you really captured the look and feel you were going for and that alone can be very difficult. Got to love that 80′s style… “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need any roads..” :-)

  3. I’ve really enjoyed and have been inspired by much of your work (your TRON designs are what put Signalnoise on my radar), but I have to say… this one is one of my favorites. For fans of Signalnoise and Back to the Future, this is a near-perfect piece.

    Any chance you’ll be making this available as wallpaper in the near future?

  7. the lesson is:
    more truck stop you put on a project, better is the result. I can’t see METAL, that’s weird!! :D :D :D
