Captain Scarlet Artist

 

Captain Scarlet was one of those Supermarionation TV series by Gerry Anderson that had a very realistic feel to it. Unlike Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet was very close to real life as any of the Anderson puppet creations. Always fueled by outlandish stories and sci-fi themes, but the one thing that this show offered was the ending credits with splash page art by Ronald Sydney Embleton. Most of the Anderson soundtracks were powerful compositions and with Ronald Sydney Embleton’s art, it brought a whole new life to the series. Ronald also did the bubble-card series of the TV series, his art was really powerful for the medium. He was mostly known as a book illustrator, but his Captain Scarlet art is well known by many and a real treat. Captain Scarlet on Youtube >>
