Callum Strachan, concept artist. Homage to MOON

The limitations of this page size do not do Callum Strachan’s MOON homage above justice, so make sure you click on it, or HERE to see it in all it’s glory. From Callum:

***POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT***

After viewing ‘Moon’ for the 10th time, it was clear that I needed to do something about the obsession! The strongest feelings I came away with from the film can be boiled down to the scene where Sam speaks with Eve via the remote link and hears that Tess has passed away; an intensely powerful moment. The empathy I felt for the character of Sam and the helplessness he must have experienced made me want to capture that sentiment in a painting.
As a concept artist, it’s moments of raw humanity like this that I hope to articulate in my own work. But more than this, it’s really just a small piece to express my appreciation for the film and the work that went into it.
Finally, I’ve noticed Duncan uses the word ‘Homage’ a lot to describe the influences he took from other classic sci-fi films, I thought it would be fitting to paint a ‘Homage’ to his.
