Dan McPharlin

I’ll continue with the Sci-Fi theme a bit – here’s some illustrations by Australian Dan McPharlin. I found out about McPharlin over on everyone’s favourite Sci-Fi blog: Sci-Fi-O-Rama.

    Just in case you are too young to know, the style is very similar to Roger Dean’s work. I’m sure that is entirely deliberate and meant as more of an homage than a rip off.

The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
