Illustration focus, inspiration

I just uploaded a bunch of small scans of illustrated double-page spreads from 1980s’ Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine. There’s a bunch in my Flickr set of scanned radness—which is actually pretty heavy in the sf illustration that I love so much—but here’s three I like quite a bit.
