2001: a space odyssey

In the early 1990's Simon Atkinson teamed up with Author Piers Bizony to bring to life a project that both had independently dreamed of for many years. A book. THE definitive account of the making of the greatest Sci-Fi movie of  all time - Stanley Kubrick's 2001: a space odyssey.  Featured here are pictures of Simon's main spacecraft illustrations.

        2001: Filming The Future 

       

The Illustrations seen here were produced over 25 years ago and, following the discovery of the original large format transparencies used for the 'Filming the Future' pages, have been painstakingly restored in preparation for reproduction as a limited edition fine art print collection.

 SPACE SHUTTLE ORBITER 

Illustration for 'The Space Shuttle: Celebrating Thirty Years of NASA's First Space Plane' by Piers Bizony (Aurum Press) This drawing was the result of exhaustive research using information from on NASA's National Space Transportation System Reference Volume's 1,2 & 3 kindly supplied by NASA's Press Department. 

The illustration started out as a pencil drawing which was scanned and traced in Corel Draw. Prior to publication the drawing was 'coloured in' by another artist without reference to Simon and appears in the book in this rather disappointing part- coloured final form. Here is the original line drawing.
