Sydney Jay Mead, commonly Syd Mead (born July 18, 1933), is an American industrial designer and neofuturistic concept artist. He is best known for his designs for science-fiction films such as Blade Runner, Aliens and Tron. Of his work, Mead was once moved to comment: "I've called science fiction 'reality ahead of schedule. His works, many of which are critically acclaimed and highly regarded, have led to Mead being called "the artist who illustrates the future"
Sentinel is not a book of fantasy, it is a visual encyclopaedia of the possible. Being a highly trained Industrial designer, Syd Mead makes sure that all his blueprints are working drawings. This technical conviction and briljant finish gives steel, glass and chrome a sense of purpose and reality in all his images-from inner-city transportation systems to megastructures in outer space.
