The Syd Mead

This illustration was a gift for my friend Syd Mead, the incredible concept artist behind movies such as Blade Runner, Tron, Aliens, and so much more. Thank you Syd, for being so supportive of my career,for being a good friend and for being such an incredible inspiration since my childhood! :)

Had no idea you were so well acquainted with Syd Mead! Mead has been a longtime inspiration of mine, as he has been for so many. It's a testament to how prescient his work was that people still draw upon his designs from nearly 30 years ago for their concept of future. Little has changed fundamentally about the imagery we see in films and sci-fi book covers, and its all got Syd Mead written allover it! A true original. ANd a grea drawing by the way. You really need to be making more comics.

I met him seven years ago at VCU where he gave a lecture on concept art and his career. We went out for lunch afterwards and became good friends over the years. He is one of the most incredible people I have ever met. He is a legend, incredibly intelligent and motivated yet so humble. He has been very supportive of my career and I cannot thank that man enough.

And thank you for your kind words Jed, you are too kind! :)
