A hand-painted Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) self-fitting jacket costume design from the production of Robert Zemeckis' sci-fi sequel Back to the Future Part II. Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) brought Marty to the year 2015 and gave him a futuristic ensemble to help him blend in, including a self-drying, auto-resizing jacket. John Bell, whose other credits include Jurassic Park and Starship Troopers, hand-painted the design in watercolours. He worked from original sketches by costume designer Joanna Johnston, three pages of which are also included with the lot. The sketches are on white paper and rendered in pencil and ink. They feature four different poses and angles of Marty, along with annotations. One is labelled "Marty Junior", one "'Our' Marty" and one just “Marty”. The drawing labelled "Marty" is partially coloured and also features sketches of specific jacket components. The three pages of sketches are stamped “Designed by Joanna Johnston”. The pages have some minor creasing and curled corners from production use and age. This lot comes with a letter of authenticity from a senior crew member. Dimensions (largest page): 40 cm x 32 cm (15 3/4" x 12 1/2")
