BladeRunner

 

My illustration of one of my favorite movies of all time, 1982’s Blade Runner. Directed by Ridley Scott and featuring Harrison Ford,Sean Young and an iconic performance by Rutger Hauer as replicant Roy Batty.

Most importantly the film was adapted from legendary science fiction author Philip K. Dick‘s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?(1968).  Dick died shortly before the premiere of the film but was able to see his visions brought to life in what is considered a seminal science fiction film. This would be the first of many adaptations of his work but in my opinion the best.

It also features a fantastic soundtrack by  Vangelis.
