Syd Mead, the renowned designer behind such films as BLADE RUNNER, TRON, 2010, and ALIENS, has joined the EXPOSÉ 2 Advisory Committee. EXPOSÉ 2 is the second in Ballistic Publishing's series of award-winning digital art books celebrating the talents of digital artists worldwide. Advisory Committee members will collaboratively assist in the selection of artwork to be presented in EXPOSÉ 2, as well as take on an advisory role ensuring the highest quality standards.
"Idea trumps technique every time," offers Mead. "Creating visualized scenario, (essentially the choice of the artist) is an elaborately furnished skill that first, creates the motivation, then the idea and lastly uses whatever technique seems to suit. The fact that computer-driven creation of visual scenario is now used means that digital computation has finally been able to duplicate the look, the feel and the nuance of 'traditional' hand-drawn, hand-painted artwork."
Mead's illustrious career has led him to many high profile projects such as the supersonic Concorde interiors, car prototypes for Ford and celebrated feature film work.
