Many years ago my friend GORDON CLARK hatched an animated project about a bio-dome of cattle lost in outer space. It was called CATTLESTAR GALACTICA.
While the Sci-fi set-up is a cross between “LOST IN SPACE”, “SILENT RUNNING” and “SPACE 1999″, this story would have been largely a musical, with the bufoonish space cowboy singing lots of goofy songs to his sidekicks (a robot and a lost Russian cosmonaut Dog) as they all sat around an electronic camp fire, between whacky adventures in space, dealing with the manic CAPTAIN COW; An intergalactic bovine warrior who wants to set the cattle free.
Having been conceived by Gordon, it was bound to be a very funny show, coz he is a very funny man. Sadly, it was long ago consigned to that ever-growing pile of “would have been great” but “never got made” projects that I’ve been involved with over the years, which is a pile containing my favourite projects ever. This marker sketch is some of the pitch art (and character designs) I did for it.
