About the Artist
Robert T. McCall was born in 1919 and has been drawing nearly all of his life. An art school graduate from Columbus, Ohio, he found success drawing illustrations for Life. National Geographic and the Saturday Evening Post. His World War II service in the Army Air Corps inspired a lifelong interest in aerospace subjects. As an illustrator for NASA, he chronicled the race to the moon.
McCall was once described by writer Isaac Asimov as "the nearest thing to an artist in residence from outer space". His multi-story murals appear in the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, EPCOT, the Pentagon and the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Conversely, he has also designed 21 U.S. postage stamps.
In 1970 McCall and his wife, Louise, a painter in her own right, moved from New York to Arizona, after a trip there left him artistically inspired. Stanley Kubrick then commissioned him to produce a set of promotional paintings for the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
In addition, McCall has created conceptual paintings for the Star Trek feature movies and has done work for other films such as "The Black Hole" and "Tora! Tora! Tora!".
