R.I.P 2020

Here we go again, folks...another exciting year of death to come.

I'm calling Betty White & Lance Henriksen.
Sadly, I've been thinking David Attenborough lately too.

I think we're going to lose:
One 80's action star.
One 90's sitcom star.
One Under-30.
***and I think we're going to have one murder***
Time will tell.


So, first entry this year (that I've noticed) would be Syd Mead.
Known for his work on many sci-fi films as a concept artist...he has worked on just...fucking visually iconic movies, that all had stunning aesthetics in his amazing "what if?" visions of our worlds of tomorrow.

Well deserved of the title "The artist who illustrates the future", you may not know who he is, but there's NO chance you haven't seen some of his work realised on film as some of our favourite futuristic/scifi scenarios over the years.
