Syd Mead - A Futurist Illustrator

Cyd Mead is a well known illustrator who illustrated for the movie "Blade Runner". His drawings are amazing. I checked his official site. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a lot of illustrations (maybe I missed them?). I did find other sites with his drawings. One site is the CG Society - Society of Digital Artists. There are other digital artists featured as well in CG. Isn't he amazing?! Some of his drawings even look almost realistic. Another source, is Flickr (naturally). A set by Michael Heilemann. The images above are from his set. A scene from the Blade Runner movie. The other one as you can see, is a car. I have no information about it, but personally, I think it kinda look almost like the Batmobile..

If you go to the site, you can find his filmography bio. Blade Runner isn't the only movie that he contributed to. He also contributed to several other science fiction movies. Some of them are the Aliens, 2010, and TRON.
