'The Black Hole' 1979 Movie Concept Art of Robert McCall as Inspiration For Your Old School Science Fiction Campaigns

   Robert McCall was one of the premiere sci fi artists of all times who got his start in Life magazine in the 1960's. The gentleman worked on some of the best sci fi of the 70's and 80's including films such as Star Trek The Motion picture and the Black hole. Mr. McCall passed on in 2010 but his legacy lives on.

Its only recently that I've discovered his incredible artwork on one of my all time favorite films 'The Black Hole' and 2001 A Space Odyssey. 

This legacy of artwork included things like designs for V.I.N.C.E.N.T

And the various incarnations of  the star ship U.S.S. Palomino

 More versions of the Palomino.

  1. Great stuff!

    The Black Hole is such a fantastic movie and it's cool to see this concept art. The soundtrack is also wonderful and gets regular play on my iPod.

  2. Its one of my all time favorite films and I ran across this concept art in a recent Google search but its not the only bit of it I ran across. There's more of it coming up Fractalbat, thanks for the comment. I'm glad I'm not the only one who still loves this classic film. Cheers and as always more coming up.
