Every Friday I feature artwork from a classic of science fiction cinema. This week's "Flashback Friday" post is on Jurassic Park (1993).

Two of the storyboard artists on that classic film are David Lowery, John Bell and TyRuben Ellingson.

David Lowery is a professional storyboard artist who's worked on blockbuster movies like Minority Report (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Iron Man (2008). TyRuben "Ty" Ellingson is a conceptual designer for Hollywood films like Star Wars (1977), Avatar (2009) and Pacific Rim (2013).

  1. Amazing how well the storyboards line up with the actual scenes.
    And that film is still amazing. Looks just as good as the day it was released twenty years ago. (Wow, now I feel old..)

  2. It is exceptional Alex. Spielberg always works closely with the the storyboard artists and has even one some simple ones himself. I still think 1990 is ten years ago...

  3. 20 years yet? Is always good to see "new" stuff from Jurassic Park.
