The Matrix Poster by Dwayne-L The Matrix Poster by Dwayne-L
Please note that this poster is unofficial and not affiliated with the film in any way.

The Matrix is one of my favourite sci-fi films and I got excited when MarcelisKhaldern and I decided on creating posters for the trilogy. I created this poster for the first film, he worked on the poster for The Matrix Reloaded which you can see here and we're both busy collaborating on the poster for the third and final film, The Matrix Revolutions.

As always, it was a jumble of random ideas flying about in my head, including a thought about peanut butter sandwiches and coffee which then led me to make just that. And then when I got back to my creative mulling, the first thing I thought was, "I should have added apricot jam." When I really got back to working on the poster, I started forming what I thought was an amazing idea. And then I stopped to admire my progress which ended up in the recycle bin. So I thought, "What's the first iconic moment that pops into my head when I think of The Matrix?". And then the rest was history. I got working on silhouettes right away and the colours and layout fell into place not long after. I added what I thought is a cool little design touch with a "Matrix Sunset" and that was a wrap.

I'm really proud of this and I hope you like it too.

The original is much larger in resolution but I always resize my work smaller. It also helps with loading times.

Thanks for your comment, though. :)
