Artist Ken Lamug captures the kinetic mayhem in his tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road. His wide shots capture the vast desert landscape, where trouble can come out at any point. Lamug captures the action with such intensity in his crooked angles and extreme close-ups.
2) Mad Max!
Not only does the artwork refer to Fury Road, there are tons of nods to the Mad Max franchise. I love how the opening starts out as a western shootout starring Dr. Frankenstein. So if you’re a Mad Max fan, you’ll definitely dig Mad Dash!
