Incredible Inception Art

I saw Inception on opening weekend and was blown away by the film. It is easily in my personal “Top 5″ movies that I have ever seen. If you haven’t seen it yet, please go out and watch it as soon as you possibly can! For those who have seen it (and those who are still waiting), here is some amazing fan made designs inspired by the movie. Enjoy!

Note, none of these are my own designs. They all belong to whoever created them. If you like a specific design, click on the link to go to where the image lives. Some are available for print, while others are not. Thanks

Inception is a 2010 science fiction action film written, produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, and Cillian Murphy. DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a thief who extracts information from the subconscious mind of his victims while they dream. On the run from Cobol Engineering, and unable to visit his children, a client offers Cobb a chance to regain his old life in exchange for one last job: performing an inception, the planting of an idea into the mind of his client’s competitor.

These are incredible. Each one gave me goosebumps, Inception was simply breathtaking. Thank you!


Lee Gustin Reply:

thank you :) I agree, Inception was such a genius movie!!

great post.

mind sharing your top5?


Lee Gustin Reply:

Not in any specific order:

1. Avatar 2. The Dark Knight 3. Inception 4. Batman Begins 5. Casino Royale.

I know they are all recentish movies, but they stick in my mind as my best. Theres plenty though. I love The Shawshank Redemption too. Yours?



August 17, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Yeah, recent ones. I placed inception in my top20. Although its very interesting to see its complexity unrolling, I think the matrix, dark city and eXistenZ had already covered much of this kind of plot. But nolan skills are awesome, especially in both batman movies you placed on your top5.

My top is less action-packed… Garden State, Peaceful Warrior, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, V for Vendetta, Children of Men, Dedication, The Wackness, Fight Club, Memento, Serendipity, …

thanks for clearing my curiosity


Lee Gustin Reply:

The Matrix is definetely in my top 20, as well as Fight Club and Memento.

I haven’t seen Garden State or V for Vendetta, but I’ve heard good things about both.

Cheers :)

Have you ever seen Mr. Nobody? If not, you should check it out. If it inspires you enough, make some amazing art from it! You have amazing creativity and Inception was such an incredible movie.

Protip: In the last poster, it has level 4 and limbo as separate entities when they are actually the same thing. Click on my website link for further guidance on this matter.


Lee Gustin Reply:

“Concerned Reader”, thanks for checking out the post.

In the link you supplied, Level 1 is the same as reality; while in the last poster on this post, Level 1 and Reality are two different levels. I believe that is where the disconnect is coming from. It is all in the eyes of the persons point of view (as there are plenty of them in this movie).

Cheers :)

I think your posters are awesome. I also like that you respond to so many comments. Very cool on both fronts.


Lee Gustin Reply:

Thank you Amy, I am glad you like the posters. I actually can’t take any credit for the design of the posters, as they are have been done by other artists (each poster links to the artists page/source).

I have recently been trying to reply to most comments. I find it turns into better conversations rather than just someone commenting “cool” and thats it.

Thanks for enjoying the site

Cheers :)

These are amazing, any way I could possibly get a print copy of a few?


Lee Gustin Reply:

Justin, thanks for the kind words. All of the images link to where I found them on the web. If they are from Flickr or DeviantArt, most likely you can order prints or ask the artist if they can sell you one. The 6th poster down I actually purchased a print from DeviantArt and it looks really amazing (a 20″ x 30″ print).

Good luck :)

those posters are amazing.
the graphics on them are so spot on, especially if you’ve seen the movie.
love it.

You took the key from Anberlin’s lost songs cd cover lol


Lee Gustin Reply:

I did not design any of these posters, I found them scattered throughout the web, and showcased them here.

Good observation with the Anberlin cover; but if you look at the two keys side-by-side, they are actually very different keys. Although, the artist of the poster may have been inspired by Anberlin’s music and that cover :)

Nice Posters, lame movie

In each poster, i can see the subject(the movie) from a different view. I’ve been working on a theatre poster and that works helped me so much to make a decission.
There can be many ways to give your message. But the thing that catches one’s eye is the simplicity.. (i like the minimalist ones more) Thanks..


Lee Gustin Reply:

Thanks for the comment love. I totally agree about liking the minimalist posters the best :)

You should definitely include this guy’s:

Hey Lee,

As Inception is one of my favourite films I must say I am impressed by all your illustrations. I feel they also help with my understanding of the movie’s concept as a whole. Anyway cut to the chase, can any of these be purchased? Good Work.



Lee Gustin Reply:

Thanks for the nice words Dougie :)

As I’ve said in previous comments, “I actually can’t take any credit for the design of the posters, as they are have been done by other artists (each poster links to the artists page/source).” So if your interested in one poster specifically, click on it to go to the source of the poster, and see if its for sale. A good chunk of them are actually (I have one hanging up in my room actually)

cheers :)

Great film, great post, Thanks!



December 13, 2010 at 7:49 pm

Cool pics! Thank you. As a fellow fan, I’m interested in what you think the very last scene of the movie implies. I don’t wanna ruin it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, so if you can’t answer, I understand. Thanks again.

This is some great Inception inspired art. I recently participated in an inception comic cover contest here:

Inception was one of the greatest movies of all time…Nolan is simply a genius! This artwork does it justice, Great poster art for the movie “Inception” :)

These are all really cool. I love the bottom one with the shades of grey. I wish I were an artist so I could depict all the emotions I felt during this movie!



February 25, 2011 at 5:22 pm

Hey man, those prints are all sick, is there anyway I could get the hook up to buy them?


Lee Gustin Reply:


Thanks for the nice words, I agree that they are all sick. As I’ve mentioned in other comments, none of these are my work, they all belong to whoever designed them. If you like a specific design, click on the image to go to where I found the design. Some are available for print (I have one in my room right now) and some are not.

Cheers :)

Leo’s totem wasn’t the top, it was his wife’s. His totem was the wedding ring.



December 7, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I believe ‘Inception’ to be the most brilliant concept for a film in a longtime. Especially coming out of Hollywood. These posters are amazing! Ovations to the artists depictions.


Lee Gustin Reply:

Totally agree Aidy :)

The top is not Cobb’s totem, its his wedding ring, the top is mal’s
