Closer Than We Think: 40 Visions Of The Future World According To Arthur Radebaugh

Closer Than We Think: 40 Visions Of The Future World According To Arthur Radebaugh

From 1958 to 1962, illustrator and futurist Arthur Radebaugh thrilled newspaper readers with his weekly syndicated visions of the future, in a Sunday strip enticingly called “Closer Than We Think”.

Radebaugh was a commercial illustrator in Detroit when he began experimenting with imagery—fantastical skyscrapers and futuristic, streamlined cars—that he later described as “halfway between science fiction and designs for modern living.” Radebaugh’s career took a downward turn in the mid-1950s, as photography began to usurp illustrations in the advertising world. But he found a new outlet for his visions when he began illustrating a syndicated Sunday comic strip, “Closer Than We Think,” which debuted on January 12, 1958—just months after the Soviet Union launched Sputnik—with a portrayal of a “Satellite Space Station.” Continue reading »

The Future Is Now: Cyberpunk Illustrations Of A Dystopian Future

“The future is now,” might be a true statement: we live in a present that’s in constant flux—maybe it even means we’ve entered the future as a state of mind, if not the literal definition of a fixed point in time. As fun as it is to debate, Josan Gonzalez’s art books of the same name are decidedly set in a future we have not yet set foot in.
