Picking up where I left off in my last post,
some doodles from my sketchbook.
A voyage to Planetoid Pluto:
Notice in the 4th and 5th frames, the red landing capsule… another tribute to sci-fi from an earlier era: Adrift in the Stratosphere. The type is hand-rendered.
Adrift was a childhood favorite of mine… Actually, it was my father’s book, which I inherited, and somehow lost along the way. In my quest for a replacement I saw copies as cheap as $2 and copies as expensive as $100. I picked mine up at a price somewhere in between.
You can see more of George W. Blow’s work and an abundance of other pulp imagery here.
