This is another concept art book collaboration between Scott Robertson, Annis Naeem and Daniel Gardner.

The previous book they worked on was DRIVE: vehicle sketches and renderings which features ground vehicles. With BLAST, they take to the skies and design aircrafts and flying ships.

The 128-page book is filled with concept sketches and paintings. There are lots of aircrafts coming in all sorts of interesting shapes and designs. There are bulky ones, those that look like they have sails, vertically skewed ones, others, and one that I found the front to look like Iron Man. However, there are no gigantic deep space exploration crafts like those from Star Trek.

There is also an invited guest artist section featuring work from Harald Belker, Ian McQue, Thom Tenery, David Hobbins, Darren Bacon and Joon Ahn.

It's a great book recommend to those who like sci-fi flying ships and art. It's an inspiring collection if you're looking for ideas.

There are both hardcover and paperback editions.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast! Wish I`d drawn that... 18 Sep 2012
I bought this book on the strength of Parka`s excellent video review, and what a crackingly good volume it is!
Robertson and his fellow artists are firm advocates of the pencil and marker-pen, as their exemplary sketch-work reveals; many of the pieces are eventually scanned and finished in digital media, but the inventive processes described and the products of their imaginings are both fascinating and instructive. The finished works are often extraordinarily beautiful, intelligently realised futuristic artworks.
A thoroughly inspiring and well-produced book, crammed with wonderful images, highly recommended for anyone interested in science fiction art and graphic design.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 24 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, great images and explanation. Although I wished it contained some more page's to look at. Maybe a bit more of the 'guest-artists'? Nevertheless I think the book is worth the price
