Olly Moss is a fantastic illustrator who has designed some of my all-time favorite posters. He’s in high demand, designing for studios, video game companies, Mondo, and his own art shows. But even he doesn’t bat 1.000. Yesterday he tweeted these rejected Top Gun designs along with an explanation of why they weren’t accepted.
I was asked to do three Top Gun posters but I could only come up with volleyball ideas so the sketches were rejected
Ha! That is hilarious, and that poster with the volleyball helmet? That is genius. I don’t know who rejected these, but big mistake. Huge. I doubt I’m the only person who would gladly pay money to hang these on my wall.
