Olivier Pron was the lede matte painter for Guardians of the Galaxy. His concepts for the movie sets—and other movies and personal projects—are extremely cool. I love the Chris Foss-iness of Xandar, the home planet of the Nova Corps. The rest of his work is equally great. I wish I could roam his worlds with an Oculus Rift.

Update: A reader points out that, if you zoom into that runway, there's a really cool easter egg. Check it out.

That's a blue version of Spike Spiegel's "Swordfish II" from COWBOY BEBOP! (Perhaps the "Swordfish I"?)
I wonder how many other Easter Eggs there are in these...
