Rhapsody

For all the many fine artists illustrating science fiction, I still have to say Kelly Freas is my favorite. He was not 'realistic' in the traditional sense.

He was like Frazetta, painting much from the imagination, and stylized in the form of a feverdream or vision. He painted the future from memory.

And just as an aside, I like the word 'rhapsody'.
