“The idea for the series honestly came about when I was about five pieces into it, and continued to grow as I grew more comfortable with watercoloring,” Chilcott told me. “I hadn’t tried it before, but being a huge fan of the insanely talented Scott C., I started to paint with the ideas that had been building in my head for years. I quickly realized that pretty much every movie that I loved had an iconic mode of transportation in one way or another, and that became a fun focus for me.”

Prints of these paintings will be available online only starting Friday, July 28 at 12pm EST, through Sunday, July 30 at 11:59pm EST. However, they’re only available in random sets of three. They’re 7x7 inches each, signed but unnumbered, and cost $45. If you’re more of a completist, there’s also an 18 x 24 inch poster with all 50. That’s a limited run of 100 and costs $50.

But, if you are in Brooklyn and at the show, the original paintings are $125 framed and you can take them with you.
