Vintage Japanese Lost In Space Art!
I'm always deeply fascinated by how American science fiction tv is interpreted around the world; especially Japan. The following schematic images of the Jupiter 2, Chariot, and B9 Robot from Irwin Allen's Lost in Space are an excellent example of this. These schematics are from famed Japanese illustrator Shoji Otomo who produced a vast number of such drawings for Japanese Boys magazines of the 60s. He is particularly famous for his anatomical drawings of giant monsters from Toho and Tsuburaya Productions. Enjoy!
