John Schoenherr, Wings of a Bat (via myriac)
Cover for Chapterhouse: Dune
An illustration by John Schoenherr for John Berryman’s novelette “The Trouble with Telstar.”
Telstar 1 was the first communications satellite, and its cultural impact was huge. Its distinctive shape was mirrored by the Mechonoids in Doctor Who. Telstar also inspired the instrumental of the same name by the Tornados, which was arguable the first synthpop song.
Aliens from a planet with high gravity rendered by John Schoenherr. I have a much easier time finding pictures of low gravity aliens than high gravity ones.
