Let's Run Away To The Big City In The Sky

Illustration for article titled Lets Run Away To The Big City In The Sky

The landscape work of concept artist Robert McCall invites us to explore new space cities of the future. In a movie world where we spend most of our time watching remakes and adaptations, we often lose the wonder of visiting a totally new world, so McCall's sweeping imagination provides a great escape. McCall's professional work is a staple among scifi art: He created the poster for 2001: A Space Odyssey, designed space travel stamps for the US post office and was the governments go-to artist for the murals at the National Air and Space Museum. Check out the attention to all things space-tastic in a full gallery after the jump.

I have a book of his art, "Vision of the Future", I think it's called. With text by Ben Bova. There was art from a cancelled "War of the Worlds" remake that looked amazing. I used to pore over it for hours as a kid. I was such a nerd then - Should have looked at playboy instead I guess.
