Footnotes

  • This, and the following 22 lots, are original concept design illustrations by Mike Trim for Gerry Anderson's sci-fi series. Trim joined A.P. Films in 1964 as a Special Effects Assistant and after about a year, Derek Meddings, the special effects supervisor, asked him to become storyboard artist on 'Thunderbirds'. Mike then contributed designs for secondary craft, vehicles, and buildings and from 'Captain Scarlet' onwards he produced designs for some of the major craft in the various series. Almost all of the designs offered in this sale are pictured in the book 'The Future Was Fab: The Art Of Mike Trim', Anthony Taylor with Mike Trim, Hermes Press, 2006.
