The Future According to Syd Mead

Back in 2001 I put together a little site showcasing artwork from Sentinel, a book of futurist concept paintings from the legendary Syd Mead. Six years on, I never expected that it would continue to have a life. Various sites still link to it, and people still send me emails asking where they can get the book (on eBay, but be prepared to shell out the big bucks). In the past week, I revisited the book and rescanned many of the images at a larger size for assembly in a Syd Mead – Sentinel flickr set containing several new images not on the scrubbles site. Mead’s extraordinary sense of style, color and blazing optimism still knock my socks off. Here’s a sampler, for the dreamers among us:

Mead - Lecture Hall

Mead - Race to the Megastructure

Mead - Wonderwall

    Do you or anyone have any idea where drawings of Mead are for sale?
    I’ve been searching, but no luck.

  3. @ eldert: Its difficult to find any hard copy on him, all his books are out of print and only exorbitantly expensive used copies are floating around ebay etc. If you just like to see more of his work online you can spot some of his older work posted by fans on Flickr.

  4. @DB-742:
    as with all things that are of great quality and equally rare, they’re way too expensive it seems.
    Guess I’ll have to settle for digital then.
