Peter Elson - The Rim of Space

Not so much a new post rather an update of an older one, it’s not that I’m running low on material, I just love this image! So thought I’d re-post larger and minus the book livery.

What I like here in particular (aside of course from the weather beaten rocket) is the fashion/costume element, it’s what I dig most in Sci-Fii – futuristic clothing – only this isn’t really futuristic and that makes it even better… An old school 80′s Ski Jacket adorned with sew-on patches, each patch with it’s own unique lexicon, a self contained design all on it’s own. Plus even more 80′s; check the chunky looking phone/walkie talkie, bollocks to touch screen devices!

Again this is via the brand new & awesome http://www.peterelson.co.uk

Peter Elson (3) – Divergence

Peter Elson - Divergence

First of all apologies if you’ve noticed some blog/site weirdness here recently, disappearing post’s, redirected pages, missing CSS – basically I’ve had a few WordPress security/hacking issues, hopefully it’s all sorted now…

Ok so I’m proud to present another sample of the work of the legendary Peter Elson. It’s been a fair while since I last featured his work so a quick refresh, Peter was one of the UK’s premier Sci-Fi Illustrators during the 70′s and 80′s and is also synonymous (as with other artists here) with the Terran Trade Authority Books. His work really is stunning beautiful hi-tech designs mixed with gorgeous technicolor backdrops as is demonstrated here in this tracking shot high above Jupiter…

This image comes from the brand new official  http://www.peterelson.co.uk/ that’s been put together by Designer Martin Lucas and Peter’s sister, a superb site with over 300+ large images and the chance to buy exclusive prints. A truly great resource of inspiration & a fitting tribute to IMO one of the greatest Sci-Fi Illustrators/Designers ever…

Peter Elson – Pebble in the Sky

Peter Elson - Pebble in the Sky

Art by the late Peter Elson, one of the 70′s most prolific Sci-Fi artists and a master at rendering future space hardware. As well as illustrating many book jackets Peter along with many of his contemporaries – including Chris Moore and Angus Mckie – was also heavily involved with illustrating The Terran Trade Authority, an illustrated Sci-Fi Project running from 1978 to 1980. More on that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terran_Trade_Authority
