Ron Embleton

If you are wondering who did the artwork for the Captain Scarlet end title sequence then you might be surprised to find out it was the great Ron Embleton - probably Britain's greatest illustrators of the 60s and beyond. His work varied from serious historical reconstructions - (probably his most famous work in this field is the Roman army studies he did for Hadrian's Wall) but he also did all manner of strips ranging from Mickey Mouse monthly to Penthouse magazine's Oh Wicked Wanda. I am particularly fond of his frontier paintings another of his specialisations - see pic - available from here.
