A Tribute To Robert T McCall


Here is my composite image based off of Robert T McCall's famous movie poster painting for the movie 2001: a space odyssey.
The models used for this composite were my scratch built Space Station 5. Images of the model can be viewed here. Plus Lunar Models Orion III Space Clipper. Images of the model can be viewed here.

From Wikipedia:


Robert McCall (December 23, 1919 – February 26, 2010) was a conceptual artist, known for his work on the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey. He worked as an illustrator for LIFE magazine in the 1960s before working as an artist for NASA, documenting the history of the Space Race. In addition, he was a production illustrator on Star Trek: The Motion Picture. His work can be found on U.S. postage stamps, NASA mission patches, and his murals grace the walls of the National Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, The Pentagon, EPCOT Center, and Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center.

Robert McCall died on February 26, 2010 of heart failure in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was survived by his wife Louise, their two daughters, Linda and Catherine, and four grandchildren.

This has been a fun series Warren. Do you like Ralph McQuarrie's art?

I think between McCall and McQiarrie al the bases are covered. At least as far as movies go.

Sci Fi that is.

Really worthy of the film, if you say so. I know the scene. As you know, I don't understand about "scifi" world. But This composite is like real life.
