Fusion by Rob-Caswell Fusion by Rob-Caswell
A Traveller scene. A disabled Type-A Free Trader finds a way to fuse its systems to an ancient, derelict alien starship in order to limp its way back into the space lanes, where its eventually encountered by a Patrol Cruiser.
Done around 1990 as a Traveller magazine illustration. I forget who the adventure story author on this one was (any help out there?).

Because even in the future you'll still need Duct tape & Bailing wire!

Great work, it always fascinates me to see what little amount of contours and other lines some people need to perfectly define shapes!

I think that's the secret of SUCCESSFUL commercial illustration: "economy of line". It was my Holy Grail.... remaining at large even today ;)

Very nicely done. I love such style, especially in comics.

I wish I could do comics with this quality. Alas, I was never fast enough... unless I wanted to just make the single Great American Comic Book in my life ;)
