Angus McKie

Back in April I did a post about this amazing book from the 80s that I'd rediscovered of gorgeous paintings and histories of spaceships. Three of the images I included in the post were by a guy named Angus McKie. When I was in Newcastle in October I had the good fortune to meet a friend of a friend of the man himself and was allowed to hold on to a couple of his comics for a day. Unfortunately I didn't really have time to actually read them. Which is a shame. Just look.

How have I not seen this done before? A punch up in front of a projection in a porn theatre? Brilliant.

It's like part Heavy Metal, part Hitchhiker's Guide, part CF, part Little Annie Fanny part Star Wars. And part just straight up sublime epic oil painting. Apparently he's still working.
