Book Review: BLAST: spaceship sketches and renderings

BLAST: spaceship sketches and renderings - 01


This is another concept art book collaboration between Scott Robertson, Annis Naeem and Daniel Gardner.

The previous book they worked on was DRIVE which features ground vehicles. With BLAST, they take to the skies and design aircrafts and flying ships.

The 128-page book is filled with concept sketches and paintings. There are lots of aircrafts coming in all sorts of interesting shapes and designs. There are bulky ones, those that look like they have sails, vertically skewed ones, others, and one that I found the front to look like Iron Man. However, there are no gigantic deep space exploration crafts like those from Star Trek.

There is also an invited guest artist section featuring work from Harald Belker, Ian McQue, Thom Tenery, David Hobbins, Darren Bacon and Joon Ahn.

It's a great book recommend to those who like sci-fi flying ships and art. It's an inspiring collection if you're looking for ideas.

There are both hardcover and paperback editions (links at the bottom).

Wow oh wow. Thanks for this

Wow oh wow. Thanks for this great review Parka. I'm getting into transportation design a lot more nowadays and Scott Robertson is one of my favorites on the subject.

I understand there's more books by Scott Robertson on many subjects like perspective on the way in the fall and I can't wait!

I hope you're having a great vacation Parka. Come home safe and I'm looking foward to more reviews. Thanks again.
