Solar System’s wonders

Thanks Boing Boing and Scientific American:

When it comes to science fiction, fantasty, and space art, Ron Miller is an artist’s artist. Before becoming a freelance illustrator (and Hugo-nominated book author), Miller was art director for the National Air & Space Museum’s Albert Einstein Planetarium. Along with doing book and magazine illustrations, he’s also created production art for films like Dune and Total Recall, and designed stamps for the US Postal Service. Recently, Scientific American commissioned art from Miller to illustrate their new online feature, “8 Wonders of the Solar System, Made Interactive.” The multimedia feature explores the likes of Jupiter’s Red Spot, the Geysers of Enceladus, the sunrise on Mercury, and, of course, Saturn’s rings.
