Angus McKie Space and Sci-Fi Art

Illustrations of space and sci-fi art, fantasy art, comics art, paperback cover art from the artist Angus McKie.

Angus McKie is an artist who has worked as a colorist in the comics industry. He is best known as an English science fiction illustrator whose work appeared on the covers of numerous science fiction paperback novels in the mid 1970s and 1980s, as well as in Stewart Cowley's Terran Trade Authority series of illustrated books. His illustrations often present highly detailed spacecraft against vividly colored backgrounds and high-tech constructions. Like Peter Elson, Tony Roberts, Chris Foss and some other artists of the period, he influenced an entire generation of science fiction illustrators and concept artists. This lasting influence is probably visible at its best, about twenty years later, in the visual look developed for the Homeworld videogame. For more information check out the McKie Illustrations.

As a mild to medium sci-fi fan I enjoyed the visual concepts of the space world. The colors appear dramatic and the realistic atmosphere is one that could easily be dreamed about.

I like Agnus McKie's work a lot. It has this special 70s - 80s Sci-Fi feel and look which I so much enjoy. And yes there are similarities with Chris Foss and Peter Elson. I supposed these artists were fueling eachothers imaginations.
