Tom Scherman's Paintings
Tom Scherman was known for his model-making skills - and Tom models were impressive - but he was also a painter and did beautiful paintings of the Nautilus.
Here is a selection of Tom's paintings and if you like one in particular you will be happy to know that Rowland Scherman, Tom's brother, is doing limited collector's edition prints of the most beautiful ones. Please see the "Vulcania Treasures" section of this site for more informations on how to order them.
The next picture shows a detail of the above painting.
The two next paintings show the "Nautilus Two" a new version of Nemo's submarine.
Tom also did a model of it and you can discover it in the "Nautilus Two" section.
Sometime Tom was doing less elaborate paintings but the result is still nice and interesting, as you can see on this series of paintings below.
This last painting is not related to 20000 Leagues under the Sea, but it's another aspect of Tom's interest for Jules Verne's books. Here he painted the "spaceship" of "From the Earth to the Moon" which as we know was in fact a cannon shell.
