Homage to Syd Mead by steve-burg Homage to Syd Mead by steve-burg
I recently saw an exhibit of Syd Mead's original gouache paintings here in the L.A. area.

It was inspiring, and quite humbling - to say the least!

I wanted to try a bold color palette of the kind Syd Mead does so masterfully well, so this is the result. I wasn't focusing on the details of the image, this was all about the color gradients... :D

Very nice! I like the limited palette - very reminiscent of 2- or 3-color print images, like some of Syd's stuff from the '60s.

Indeed a fantastic homage to Syd Mead's work. The feeling you have conveyed in the vast structure that is so iconic to Meads work is clearly evident. The use of the gamut process beautifully works well on this piece. What I still love is you still put your own signature to it, it's like Burg & Mead have collaborated.

Love it as always.

I'm a huge fan of Syd Mead's work as well!

And I love this :) As you say, it's all about the gradients... but the subtleties inside of them provide a nice context as well, however abstract :)

I know what you mean. When I look at John Berkey, I almost feel as if I should give up. Then I feel strangely compelled to get back to it.
