Cutaway Illustrations by Matthew Paul Cushman
Original Starship Enterprise Cutaway Poster
 
This poster was created in 1995 from previous versions dating back to 1992.  This work was approved and licensed by Paramount Pictures and sold all over the world.  Further, it was displayed and sold in the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum for the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek.
X-Wing / Tie Fighter Cutaway Poster

This poster was finished and sold in time for the re-release of the Star Wars Trilogy in 1997.  This work was approved and licensed by Lucas Films and sold worldwide.  It preceded and inspired the "Star Wars Incredible Cross Sections" books put out by DK Publishing the following year.
Enterprise NCC 1701 E Cutaway Poster
 
This poster was created by Matthew Cushman and his brother Christopher while the movie it was first featured in, "First Contact", was being filmed.  The illustration is based on movie set materials supplied by Paramount Pictures and model reference supplied by Industrial Light and Magic (ILM). This was also a licensed product by Paramount. 
The Pheoenix Cutaway Poster
 
This poster is a smaller (11 X 17) poster that first made its appearance in movie theaters all over the country for the opening of the Movie "First Contact" as a free promotion piece given to ticket buyers.  The Color version soon proceeded and sold as a poster.
Klingon Bird of Prey Cutaway Poster
 
This print was produced as a side project that later became a licensed product with Paramount Pictures.  I was solely based on the miniature and set configuration seen in both “The Search For Spock” and “The Voyage Home”.
 
Speed Racer MACH 5 Cutaway Art
 
This piece of art was based on the book “Speed Racer, The Official 30th Anniversary Guide” with many childhood memories of watching the cartoon.  The objective was to create the Mach 5 as if it were really a race car.
Wing Commander’s Tiger Claw Cutaway Art

This diorama was created with the help of the film’s creator.  Reference for this piece was supplied by the movie studio to create an accurate depiction of this vessel, but eventually this was not sold as a poster. 
I was approached by Bill George, ILM Visual Effects Supervisor, to create a cutaway based on his 2 foot model of the Thomas Kellogg Shuttlecraft. Kellogg was the automotive and industrial designer who was hired to design the shuttlecraft for the original Star Trek series. As you can see some changes to Kellogg's design were changed, but the heart or the design beats through.  Bill feature this cutaway on his www.scifiairshow.com website.
Project Orion
This illustration was originally done for the book "Ultimate Voyage, A Trip Through Real Spaceship Design" that unfortunately never got off the ground.  I was lucky to have George Dyson help me finish it into a poster print and even more lucky to have Freeman Dyson sign a copy for my collection.
