THE AVIATOR is Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's depiction of the compulsive nature of Howard Hughes, a man whose life spanned many decades and obsessions. When deciding on an artist for the project we knew we needed someone who could capture the grand history of Mr. Hughes. Jonathan's art perfectly depicts both the frantic energy and old Hollywood charm of the HELL'S ANGELS sequence, portraying Hughes as both man-of-the-sky and cinematic rebel.
The regular and variant versions each represent specific color palettes in the film. Scorsese and his team created two unique palettes (Technicolor inspired two color and vibrant three-strip) to approximate the technology of the film industry in the movie's time periods.
