Image of the Day

Robert McCall, the artist who painted all the space scenes on the 2001: A Space Odyssey soundtrack LP that I was obsessed with as a kid, has died. His depictions of the future of space travel seem kind of dated now, I guess, but they encapsulate a certain era of commercial illustration, still interesting to me, when all the possibility was there but the post-war optimism had begun to fade. Or not. I don't know, I just made that up. "Dated" doesn't even mean anything in space anyway so whatever.
