It's the Flash Gordon show that nobody remembers and I can't really blame anybody. It wasn't that great of a show and was not aired for very long but it did get a toy line which you can find on "eBay" in package for cheap. I guess people thought this was going to be big so lots of people hoarded them to sell later.

Don't get me wrong, I had a blast working on it and made some friends, lots of memories to last the rest of my life. I never got to work on a science fiction show like this again but I had the best time, Tons of artwork was done and the client did not care how detailed we made anything, toys were made based on my designs ( for the first and only time ), the ships I designed were 3D ( with a 2D rendering ) and the best part, I was working on FLASH GORDON!

Hey Phil! Love your work on these designs - any chance of seeing more ship designs, or perhaps even sharing the 3D models used in the series?

Phil Postma said...

Sorry Marko, what you see is pretty much all the designs I did on Flash Gordon, I don't have any of the 3D model because that part of production was done in France.

No problem, thanks Phil - it's great to see these here anyway, awesome designs, love the ship designs especially!
