A set of Mondo poster concept studies, created for a poster for Lo Wei's martial arts action film "Fist of Fury" (1972). These pieces come from the artist commonly known as "Jock". Jock began his career at 2000AD, working on their flagship Judge Dredd comic series, and has since created concept artwork for Dredd, Batman Begins, X-Men: Days of Future Past and many more. The lot consists of five pages of artwork, rendered in pencil and ink. Each page features a different aspect of the final poster; two feature the background at the bottom; one features the film title and tagline; one is a close-up of Bruce Lee's head; and the largest one features Lee armed with nunchaku and a smaller illustration of Lee mid-fight. Three of the illustrations are on off-white paper and two on white paper. The off-white pages are pulled from sketch pads, and there is some wear from use, including curled corners.
(largest page): 23.5" x 16.5" (59 cm x 42 cm)
