Artist to look up: Syd Mead

July 22, 2018

I've been doing a bit of work on concept art / location sketches and one of the biggest influences for me is the artist Syd Mead.

 

One of the first 'movie' books I ever read was my big brother's book on art work from the 'Alien' movie, and it was the first time I ever consciously thought "You mean somebody MAKES a movie?". It was just something that I had never really thought about.

 

 

 Syd Mead has just released an amazing book which contains tons of great art work:

 

 

Including some great Alien pictures:

 

 He did so many great films, including Bladerunner, which is my favourite Sci-Fi Films.

 

I came across this super-rare book about Bladerunner that has some great sketches in it, click on it to read online:

 

 

Here are some great pics that really inspired me:
