Klaus Burgle

One of my favourite things is atwork from the past that depicts the future. Another is cut-aways, which I was obsessed with as a kid and are actually my first memories of ever doing any drawing.

You can feel the optimism of the space-race and the excitement and predictability of man in space that sadly hasn't arrived yet. There's something about Klaus Burgle's illustrations that follow on from Chesley Bonestell so naturally so I had to get him right behind as you can see him picking up the baton and going the next stretch with it. I would love a Klaus Burgle original on my wall. One day...
