London, 1965: Like many other youths, Jimmy hates the philistine life, especially his parents and his job in a company's mailing division. Only when he's together with his friends, a 'Mod' clique, cruising London on his motor-scooter and hearing music such as that of 'The Who' and 'The High Numbers', does he feel free and accepted. However, it's a flight into an illusionary world.
This is my nod, to the 'Mod'. There's always been a special spot in my heart for this film. The soundtrack was what made me discover tis beauty and it was one that I really wanted to try and re-draw the poster. I think this iconic scene really summed up the 'tribe' they had formed, the pure feeling of being free was evident, and I really wanted to try and capture it.
