The revered conceptual artist and designer died on Dec. 30 at his home in Pasadena, California, after a years-long battle with lymphoma. He was 86. Mead's unique and revolutionary vision of the future gave birth to the groundbreaking aesthetic seen in several genre-defining films, including Tron, Aliens, Elysium and, perhaps most notably, Blade Runner -- as well as the recent sequel, Blade Runner 2049. Mead is survived by his spouse and business partner, Roger Servick.
