Max City by Josh-Finney Max City by Josh-Finney
A man can only paint so much fantasy art before he has to return to the stuff he loves, which in my case is dark and gritty sci-fi! This time around I've rendered the unnamed city of the acclaimed Max Headroom Show. Exposure to this show at an earily age did much to shape the author/artist I am today.

Too nice! They did awfully nice model work when they invented that city, and this is an excellent rendering of it.

Voice-over: "This is the city. London, England. In a world where television has taken over and The dream is huge ratings, one AI will show up to challenge everything: Max Headroom..."

Man...Im a BIG fan of Max Headroom. Youve captured so well the dark and distopian look of the city.

I wish this was in HD (preferably 2560x1440) so I could use it as a wallpaper. :)

If you are a fan of Blade Runner and William Gibson, Max Headroom really is a must. It is utterly brilliant and still amazingly timely. The entire show's run was recently released through Shout Factory. You can order it from their website.

That was a such a great show in it's time, and this is an excellent portrayal of the city.

Looking back the production team did an amazing job considering their limitations, but I alway did wonder what the world of Max would've looked like with a bigger budget.

Thanks you! Actually, when the Max Headroom Show was created, the production design team was given the mandate, "Make it look like Blade Runner." And I believe at least one of the lead production designers actually worked on Blade Runner.

Very nice! I didn't miss an episode when it first aired. It was cyberpunkish with a twist. And who could ever forget M-M-Max. :D

Heheheh, indeed. I was SO jazzed last year at the con, when I picked up the dvd set that finally came out. This show was SO far ahead of its time.

Same here. It was the first thing I bought. Went directly to the booth on Thursday morning and said "GIMME MAX DAMN IT!"
