Classic Science-Fiction Illustrators (Part 4) – Peter Elson

Our classic Science-Fiction illustrators series [1][2][3] continues with a tribute to perhaps the most complete of all British artists; the late, great, Peter Elson (13 January 1947 – March 1998).

Elson’s artistic potential was evident at early age, beginning to draw as soon as he could hold a pencil. Something of a prodigy, he completed his Art A-Level two years early at age 16 (A-Grade, of course). Whilst at Ealing Art College he studied fashion before switching to graphics. His career in Sci-Fi illustration took off in 1977 when he entered and won a Sci-Fi artwork competition. Commissions began to flood in and a star was born.
