2001 is a project by recent Emily Carr University graduate Tevis Bateman. Reinterpretations may not be a new thing, but I was drawn to Tevis’ comic book version because it was such a departure from the grim dark tones of the movie.
Using the film, Space Odyssey: 2001 as inspiration, I attempted to create a new narrative for the film, by removing vital plot devices such as dialogue and text. Relying entirely on imagery from the film, the reader is left to decipher the new narrative free from the fim’s original context.
Tevis’ rough style and striking simple shapes give the movie a great twist! Check out more of his work on his website here.
