    Farewell Syd Mead (1933-2019)

    A great futurist artist left us before 2020 arrived. He showed us what was possible and how big our dreams can become. Rest in peace, Syd Mead.

    Not a great way to end the decade, Syd Mead will be sorely missed. The BBC posted a nice write up on his career:

    Just a coincidence when he passes away also in 2019, as he also worked on the scenery depicted to be in year 2019, and as well as Rutger Hauer passed away the same year...though this is just life happening, but Rutgers passing felt more scary that it actually happened the the same year as in the movie, since his character also passed away in that movie.

    A big Salute for all the great artwork from Syd, it has also left itīs mark in the world living for a long time in the future.
