This is one of the greatest things have ever seen – my eyes and brain are still arguing over whether or not it is real.
Pretty much all the 1970s television heroes and heroines I grew up watching and loving, fantastically captured and realised by artist Dusty Abell.
How many of them can you name? I’ve had a go in invisotext below, and remembered most of them, at least shakily and in some cases almost certainly incorrectly, but I’m still missing a couple.
From left – Wonder Woman, The Man from Atlantis, Starbuck, ?????, Apollo, a Cylon warrior, Steve Austin, ??????, Logan, Cylon Leader, Lucifer, The Invisible Man, Spider Man, the Bionic Woman, Romana (Actually Leela, thanks Gary), Robot, Doctor Who, Urko, Dalek, ??????, ?????, Buck Rogers, David (thanks again Gary) Bruce Banner, Hulk, Twiki, Wilma Deering, Maya, Mork, don’t know name, but was the Greatest American hero or something like that, John Koenig.
The ships, from left, Buck’s space fighter, SHADO 1 (?), G Force (?), Eagle, Cylon basestar, Tardis, Colonial shuttle, Battlestar Galactica, SHADO interceptor, UFO, Colonial Viper, space fighter, Cylon raider.
It is a wonderful piece of work. But I first saw this on the excellent Live for Films blog, created by Phil Edwards, which I urge anyone who has even the slightest interest in movies to check out asap.
