Art For Art’s Sake: Blade Runner special

Published On March 11, 2015 | By Joe Gordon | Art For Art's Sake, Film TV & Theatre

There’s an awful lot of cool fan art inspired by Blade Runner out there on the interwebs, so to celebrate the news of the UK-wide screenings of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner: the Final Cut (see previous post), I’m cheekily borrowing Richard’s Art For Art’s Sake spot (which normally runs on Sundays each week) for a Blade Runner themed special; no Replicants were harmed in the making of this artistic compilation:

      Thanks! Couldn’t resist it after seeing a lot of cool BR inspired artwork out there and the preceding post gave me a perfect excuse to indulge.
