Space: 1999

Brian Johnson hand drawn concept artwork - War Games



An original concept artwork used in the production of the cult science fiction series Space: 1999 produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

From the well regarded Year One episode War Games this concept artwork was created by noted visual effects artist Brian Johnson who would go on to win Academy Awards for his work on The Empire Strikes Back and Alien.

The hand drawn concept is accomplished in pen and depicts the structure seen on the surface of an alien planet, it features numerous doodles in Johnson's hand including the names of five of the visual effects team likely involved in the construction of the miniature and a number of times in addition to a further storyboard like doodle to the right. The artwork measure an impressive 16.5" x 11.5" and remains in excellent folded condition, very fine.

Obtained directly from the private collection of Brian Johnson this represents a rare example of an original concept artwork from this acclaimed Anderson series.
