Spaceship Vs. Pirate Galleons, For The Ultimate Booty

Illustration for article titled Spaceship Vs. Pirate Galleons, For The Ultimate Booty

Here's a knock-down dogfight between a high-tech spaceship and a whole swarm of pirate galleons, from the mind of artist Nicholas Ferrand aka V.I.A.G. Or maybe the spaceship is teaming up with the more low-fi pirates? My new favorite blog is Concept Ships, which posts nothing but concept art of spaceships, including famous people like Syd Mead and Ralph McQuarrie as well as rising stars. A gallery of some of the coolest images, below the fold.

regarding the concept ships blog (which has gone directly to my reader!): I love that the images of the A2 hypersonic jet use an A380 and...a minivan. Awesome.
