Retro-Futurism

I don’t talk about it much, but I was a big science fiction fan as a kid and I love retro-futurism, atompunk, raygun gothic, and all those related genres. This is a neat video with Bruce McCall, an illustrator who creates what he calls “faux-nostalgic art”, or art that longs for a past that never existed. Think of how people in the 1930s imagined the ’90s. I thought we’d have flying cars and colonies on the moon by now. Instead, we’re still obsessing over celebrities and fake news or whatnot. Ah well.
