Chris Foss and HR Giger’s concept art for Jodorowski’s unproduced Dune.
"Fanboys and girls would have drooled over the visual team. A then-obscure H.R. Giger designed the creepier Harkonnen settings. Dan O’Bannon, known at the time for his work with John Carpenter on the sci-fi film Dark Star, was brought on as the special effects wiz. (Jodorowsky rejected Douglas Trumbull because he found him too full of himself.) British artist Chris Foss designed the space craft. And Jean Giraud, aka French comic book artist Moebius, brought Jodorowsky’s dreams to life in some 3,000 storyboard drawings that perfectly capture a character or scene with a few quick pencil marks on the page."
Hoooly shit. Especially the Chris Foss stuff.
Mad Men’s psychedelic premiere is tomorrow at 10|9c. Be there when the final season begins.
