Foss by Jeff Love

Sci-Fi-O-Rama proudly present a very special feature on Chris Foss, as profiled by Jeff Love, owner and admin of the sublime Sci-Fi art blog Ski-ffy.

Born in 1946 in Guernsey, Channel Islands, Chris Foss is a British illustrator and a powerhouse of science fiction design and invention. His work is a celebration of future machinery, impossibly sized constructions exist on a planetary scale; a showcase of hardware so large that the human figure is dwarfed by comparison.

It’s rare to come across a piece of art that really moves me. This odyssey of distortion does just that.

Unnerving, strangely touching and certainly one of the most spellbinding and hallucinatory 5 minutes of music video your ever likely to see. This is but a taster of Luke Wyatt’s ‘Sad Stonewash’ (a Video Mulch) a 40-minute sojourn into the abyss of VHS.

I was pretty much blown away by this charmingly atmospheric SF indie animated short, sent to me recently by its creator Seattle based Designer/Animator Ian Obermuller. This first episode in a planned series revolves around an amnesiac lost in an alien jungle where he encounters a mysterious doctor and his strange companions…

Self Absorb is an extremely http://www.mindanews.com/buy-paxil/ quirky blend of cartoon visuals, black humour and general weirdness – love it! especially the vocal FX. The Animation and imagery were created using a combination of After Effects, Illustrator and of course Photoshop.
