As striking as Mead's Blade Runner art was, it's amazing to see the many different types of striking designs that up-and-coming concept artists have come up with for the "Images of Future Transport: In The Style of Syd Mead" contest, which just had its entry deadline. These are our favorite Mead-inspired images, but you should definitely check out the rest over at the link. [CGSociety, thanks Richard!]
