Classic Sci-Fi Spaceships Make Me Nostalgic For A Future That Never Was

French illustrator Manchu is one of the masters of classic sci-fi illustration. His worlds and spaceships are massive, optimistic, colourful and sometimes even zany on his alien spaceship designs. Masterfully crafted, his work reminds me of another one of the greatest: The British Chris Foss.

Seeing these paintings make me happy.

Manchu is the alias of classic science-fiction illustrator Philippe Bouchet, born in Chole, France. You can follow his work on his blog and buy his art here.
