"What you take from the Earth,
You must give back.
That is nature’s way.”
A Guardians of the Galaxy / Star Wars Mash-Up
Rocket Solo and Grootbacca?
"Two loveable space pirates all garbed up like a less current, less local pair of smugglers. Hey, now they’re all under the same corporate roof, so it’s possible! It was done in CS4 on my Cintiq 24HD."
Illustrations by Netherlands-based Michael Kus
The world we live in is cool, but Michael Kus brings it to a whole new level. Well he will…it’s not quite here yet. Mirror’s Edge, adding a whole new addition to a future sky line. With military powers to protect it powered by seals. The future is great and it’s the reason why I love Sci-Fi artists like Michael Kus. But it’s important to note that not all of Michael Kus’s artwork is of the future. He does many pieces containing fantasy. Now some could argue that Sci-Fi is fantasy… and it is! But personally I like the more techno style that Michael Kus has. Anyways I must be leaving now and I leave you with this last piece.
Welcome to rural Sweden, sometime in the late eighties. Citizens go about their mundane lives and children explore the countryside. Only, in this version of Sweden, robots and hovercrafts are commonplace and decaying science facilities sprout from the harsh Scandinavian landscape. There’s even a rumor that dinosaurs may have been resurrected by some failed experiment. This is the world that exists in artist Simon Stålenhag’s mind, and it’s only accessible through his paintings.
Simon Stålenhag is a Swedish concept artist. He’s worked on lots of media, from films, commercials and book covers to art directing and concepting for video games.
