I found an interesting article online from England's The Guardian newspaper here:
about the Future City Architectural exhibit currently at the Barbican through September 17th. The author examines the effect of cinematic design on real world architecture, and mentions Mike Trim by name, as well as Derek Meddings. Of course, Mike designed most of the buildings beginning with Thunderbirds through The Secret Service, and many of his original drawings are in the new book.
More information on the Future City exhibit is here:
Unfortunately, I won't be in the U.K. until October and will miss it.

This is Space Intruder Detector...

Mike is now accepting commissions for original art in all mediums! If you've flipped through The Future was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim (and I realize that not too many of you have been able to do that yet), you've seen several pieces that Mike did as commissions. The SHADOmobile piece on page 109 is one that he created for me a few years ago in colored pencil on Canson paper, and every time I look at it I enjoy it anew.
If you have an idea of what you'd like Mike to render as well as an approximate size and preferred medium (pencil, colored pencil or marker, full color painting, etc.), please email the information to us by clicking here and we'll get back to you with a price and delivery estimate as soon as possible.
SHADOMobiles, Martian Fighting Machines, Maximum Security Vehicles, S.I.D., Moonbase - whatever subject you'd like, be it Anderson, War of The Worlds, or original - you *can* own a piece of Mike Trim original art.
How cool is that?
