[DMCForum] Andrew Probert coming to Cincinnati next week!

Andrew Probert, a concept artist known for his work in television, film,
computer gaming and theme park design, will visit Cincinnati State May 2 and

Probert will give a presentation at 6 p.m. Monday, May 2 in the ATLC
Auditorium that includes examples of his work on such Hollywood hits as Back
to the Future and two of the Star Trek films. 

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 3, Probert will conduct a drawing clinic in the
Conference Center in the Main Building at Cincinnati State.

Both events are open to the public free of charge. Pencils, paper and other
necessary supplies will be provided for the drawing clinic.

Probert's visit was organized by Cincinnati State's Industrial Design
Technologies program, which was established eight years ago and currently
enrolls more than 40 students.

Cincinnati State President O'dell M. Owens noted that instructors and
students from the Colleges' video production, computer graphics, graphic
design and drawing classes have also expressed interest in Probert's visit.
"This is a guy who's spent 30 years in a lot of businesses involving design
- and he's worked on a lot of high-profile projects,'' Dr. Owens said.
"We're delighted to have him at Cincinnati State.''

A Navy veteran born in 1946 and educated at the prestigious Art Center
College of Design in Pasadena, California, Probert began his Hollywood
career designing the robotic Cylons for the original "Battlestar:
Galactica." That led to an assignment with "Star Trek: The Motion Picture,"
working to update the overall look of Starfleet ships and hardware. Next
came several television and feature-film projects, including "Airwolf",
"Streethawk", "Back to the Future" and, in 1987, "Star Trek: The Next
Generation" where, as the show's senior illustrator, he designed the
Enterprise bridge and battle-bridge, the exteriors of the Ferengi Marauder,
Romulan Warbird, and Enterprise-D spaceships, and provided concepts for the
remaining sets and other hardware. 

In 1989, Probert joined Walt Disney Imagineering, designing theme park rides
and attractions. He later entered the video game industry, working with
Spectrum Holobyte, Sega, and recently, Perpetual Entertainment. A resident
of Massachusetts, he is currently involved in producing paintings and an
occasional book cover.
