Revvin’ up your engine
Listen to her howlin’ roar
Metal under tension
Beggin’ you to touch and go

Highway to the Danger Zone
Ride into the Danger Zone

In 1986, Director Tony Scott gave us an action film that helped make Tom Cruise a household name and left us all singing songs from the hit soundtrack.  (To this day my wife still loves the volleyball scene.)  “Top Gun” went on to become the highest grossing movie of the year.  Odd City Entertainment, in partnership with Paramount Pictures Licensing, have collaborated with Gabz on a brilliant print.

The print is unique in that it was designed to be viewed in two directions.  Here is what Gabz had to say about the film and the project.  “When you’re an 80’s kid like myself you just had to see and fall in love with Top Gun. Sure it has that testosterone/macho vibe that used to be so popular back in those days. Call me nostalgic, but I consider it a classic action flick, with brilliant aerial sequences, cool characters and an awesome soundtrack.

When approached by Odd City for this print I knew I wanted something horizontal this time around. I decided a jet fighter battle recollecting the Cold War era should really work well with this title. I also wanted to step back from the complex multi-character based compositions with this one, and to design the print in a way so it could be viewed upside down as well.”  – GABZ
