World Sports Fair / Running of the Six DRGGX
Original Vintage Poster. Once we run out of stock, they're gone forever!
RUNNING OF THE SIX DRGGX
A series of three illustrations depicting the ultimate sports event as only Visual Futurist, Syd Mead could imagine them. With the sole directive being, they would be created primarily in the three colors of the prize winning ribbons, Gold, Blue and Red.
For Gold, Syd chose to illustrate the ultimate creature race.
Inspired by a photo of a greyhound race, Syd proceeded to exaggerate the forms as a mega-machine, each manned by a crew of eight keeping all the grace and excitement of thoroughbred racing while spectators cheer for their favorites keeping up on the details with their mini communication devices long before the proliferation of the smart-phone.
Produced in 1983
