Notizie: Premi Chesley a tutto Giancola

Fri, 2008-11-28 00:00
L'artista americano vince il premio dedicato all'illustrazione fantastica in ben cinque categorie. Tra i finalisti anche il nostro Maurizio Manzieri. Dovevano essere presentati alla WorldCon, lo scorso agosto, ma alcuni ritardi non avevano permesso di concludere in tempo le votazioni, e la premiazione aveva finito per saltare. I vincitori dei premi Chesley dedicati all'illustrazione fantastica relativi al 2007 sono stati così annunciati solo qualche giorno. Intitolati alla memoria di Chesley B

Marveltown by Bruce McCall - review

Sun, 2008-11-16 16:34
Marveltown by Bruce McCallWhen I plucked this big sunny square off the Professional Review shelves at work and surveyed the faux- Fifties Futurist paintings, I flashed back to pulling old books on rocket science off my Dad's shelves when I was a kid. The illustrations in those books were so intriguing - immense curved structures with impossibly thin floors and spires, a few tiny humans scratched in to give them scale; cratered surfaces and craggy mountains; big control rooms stocked with banks o

1950年に公開されたアメリカ映画に『月世界征服』っていうのがあった。 原題はDESTINATION MOON(デスティネーション・ムーン=最終目的地・月)、世界で最初のカラーで撮られた宇宙SFである。 ロバート・A・ハインラインの『宇宙船ガリレオ号』を原作にしたというだけあって、当時としては最新の科学考証に基づいた、ある意味、教材的な仕上がり。 スタンドバイミーの宇宙版になっただろう、少年3人が集まって月旅行ロケットを作るという話は割愛されて、いまとなっては退屈至極だけれど。 永遠に色褪せないのはその美術、とりわけ月世界の風景や、岩山なめの地球など、宇宙空間の書き割りセットが見事だった。 そう、CGでもなければデジタル合成でもない、セットいっぱいに張り巡らされた大きな絵の何と手作りで神秘的で迫力のあったことか。 クレジットはTechnical Advisor of Astronomical Art、つまり天体画の技術顧問として、当時、宇宙を描かせたら右に出る者はいないといわれたChesley Bonestell(チェズリー・ボーンステル)が参加していたのだ。 その後も同

Double Heinlein

Wed, 2008-10-08 20:48
"The Rolling Stones" "The Puppet Masters"Two new Heinlein covers. The top one is for one of his juveniles, called THE ROLLING STONES and it's not about the group. It's a family in space. Except not lost, if you get my drift. I wanted to emulate the Chesley Bonestell feel to it, with a 1950's "rocket" ship in the full light of the sun whilst two characters are exploring the dark side of Phobos, the inner moon of Mars. The bottom is the re-issue of THE PUPPET MASTERS. So many versions of the cover

The Top Ten (Post 1950) Coolest SF Pulp Magazine Spaceships

Wed, 2008-09-17 10:40
I’m not entirely sure if you can call a Post 1950s SF magazine a ‘pulp’, except in the broader sense of continuing the tradition.  And since I’m continuing the tradition of magazine cover spaceships, I’ll let myself slide a bit on the historical inaccuracy.  You guys shouldn’t worry too much - just enjoy the pictures. Startling Stories May 1951 If ever there was a recognizable pulp magazine cover, this one is it.  I don’t think there’s a single visual history of the SF magazine that doesn’t feat

Space artist Mark Maxwell: "We're on a spaceship right now"

Mon, 2008-09-01 13:12
Space artist Mark Maxwell was kind enough to take a couple questions from Jeffrey Manber while both were in Lexington recently to visit Kentucky Space. Answering the question about the purpose of space art, Mark said that people often forget that we're on a spacecraft now traveling at thousands of miles per hour, it's just that "we forget to look up." And replying to Jeffrey's question about accuracy in his work, he points out that great space art must also make us feel something about the subj
