I just love 'cutaway' illustrations. (I used to do perspective maps for tourist centres that looked dramatic, like a section of ground had been cutaway, but were totally useless as no one could quite understand how it related to the place they were stood in.) Here are 128 pages of Graham Bleathmans illustrations for Gerry Anderson shows. #grahambleathman #gerryanderson #stingray #fireballxl5 #thunderbirds #captainscarlet #joe90 #illustration #artwork #cutaway

I thought this might be an appropriate flick to watch.

An intriguing if predictable and fractured mirror image of the previous year's "2001." Which is ironic considering the plot.

The model work by Derek Meddings is excellent. While some shots are more obvious than others, there were honestly some that made me question whether I was looking at special effects or not.

I dug the whole 60s zeitgeist and style throughout. The year is never mentioned but it is a very cool, retro time in the "not too distant future." It's well written and acted with Roy Thinnes from "The Invaders" as the lead. Was that Nicholas Courtney (The Brigadier) in a brief cameo?

But with a very deliberate pace, it seems like it takes forever to get into the plot. Perhaps due to the troubled production and conflicts between the Andersons and director Parrish.

When they reach the other planet (which seems very "Prisoner" like)- it isn't hard to guess what is happening. The weird and downbeat ending is again reminiscent of "2001." I actually remember my Dad mentioning this movie to me when I was a kid. Perhaps it aired on syndicated TV sometime in the 80s or early 90s in the Philly market (maybe good ole Philly 57). #journeytothefarsideofthesun

Most of the Thunderbird strips for TV21 were illustrated by Frank Bellamy. He used designer inks on CS10 board, a heat pressed board with a very hard white surface. This meant he could use a scalpel to scratch the surface after a colour wash had been applied, bringing in very fine white lines. To create an even wash in ink on CS10 is very hard, almost impossible... if you use a brush. Frank wouldn't let anyone see his techniques but cotton wool was found in his waste basket. Apply ink to the cotton wool and dab, stroke, the board surface... and you get those smooth skies in his visuals. His working day lasted ten hours; he often worked seven days to reach a deadline; he rarely took holidays... he died at the age of 59 of a heart attack. He influenced a generation of British illustrators and designers. #frankbellamy #thunderbirds #ladypenelope #comics #illustration #artwork #arttechniques #cs10board #gerryanderson

A good example of artwork from TV21 and its sister comic Lady Penelope. Taken not from the original art-boards but remastered from the pages of the magazine so there is a slight loss of colour. (The four colour, CMYK, plates were usually very well aligned but certain blues could become Paynes Grey under the camera lighting. #tv21 #ladypenelope #gerryanderson #ronembleton #mikenoble #illustration #artwork #comics

Dinky's Space 1999 Eagle. It's seen better days for sure but it's been well loved. I believe this was the Medical version whilst the green version was command and blue, nuclear waste. As a kid growing up every household had one I swear to god! #space1999 #space #dinkytoys #gerryanderson #martinlandau #sciencefiction #cult #culttv #scifi #1970s #itv #geek #collection #collectibles #toys #memorabilia #eagle #moon #moonbase

The comic TV CENTURY 21 (later just TV21)... Need I say more. A legend in the history of comics this 60's 'illustration' strip children's magazine backed by Gerry Anderson captured in full colour lithograph printing the cream of commercial artists. I carefully collected every issue... but... well... time happens and things are lost. Now you can buy the work again, printed on quality paper, some taken from the original art-boards. Written by the same team who wrote the television episodes these often felt like extensions to the shows. It was the hay-day of British comics... the age of Albion. #tvcentury21 #tv21 #gerryanderson #thunderbirds #captainscarlet #fireballxl5 #stingray #zerox #artwork #comics #illustration #frankbellamy #keithwatson #mikenoble #brianlewis #ericeden #ronembleton #donharley #gerryembleton #allenfennell

Captain Scarlet, to his martian foes a dangerous name, a superman. They crash him and his body may burn, they smash him but they know he''ll return.. to live again. Tried to explain my obsession with Troy Tempest and Captain Scarlet today at work. Guess how that conversation went... 'No theyre puppets but I just think theyre mega attractive...' #gerryanderson #captainscarlett #superfan #supermarionation #ilovepuppets #puppets #marionettes #oldschool #myfavoriteshowintheworld
