Force Of The Future
Probably the last space related art of the past archives I could find, this 1982 art, was done for a school project. It was used in 1992, as a poster advert, for the 8th Annual Festival of Astronomy, held at Haute Maurienne Vanoise in Mt. Cenis, France.

I added more updated digital work on the galaxy effects.

Original, gouache on illustration board.

Aleta Jackson Memorial Art
Non-commissioned work Jan. 2017. 

Aleta Jackson (1948-2016)

Although not known by most of the viewers here at DA, Aleta Jackson has been seen in this gallery, particularly for “Guz’s Place”, "Lion On Tharthee" and “Space Frontier Cover”. In addition, she was the model for “In Another Country (Novel Version)”, and commissioned “I Saw Mir” for the National Space Society.

From my own perspective, she was a sci-fi/astronomical art fan, model, art buyer, and art director.

Also, hands down the most classy woman I ever met!

The first time I saw her, in 1985, she approached me at the art show room with a long black dress which I was told later was something of a “trademark” (from her Star Wars fandom days), and depicted somewhat here.

The fact I was in Arizona, where she lived, and, interested in breaking into the astronomical field of art, made our meeting inevitable. She was part of the L5 Society, which I later had covers with, and based in Tuscon.

I moved from NYC in 1986, and, one of the first things I needed, was models, as I had been using them for the book covers on a regular basis. Through her, I was introduced to the SCA (Society of Creative Anochronisms). I used several models, and their home made costumes included in the covers “Armor Of Light”, “Empress Of Earth”, “In The Country Of The Blind” and “Falling Free”

When I was commissioned for the Dec. 1988 cover for Science Fiction Analog’s “Guz’s Place”, I thought she was an absolute natural for the character! She used her charm school skills for the pose, and this was the first major nationally distributed magazine with her on it.

When, by the 1990’s, I was married, and raising a family. Aleta moved to Washington DC.   with the NSA (National Space Society).  She commissioned “I Saw Mir” shortly after going to work there.

The last time we met, was shortly after the death of our mutual friend, author G. Harry Stine, in 1997. She commissioned for me, the art of a privately financed rocket, taking off from a launching pad, which was added to the original art of “The General’s President”, the one portrait of Harry, I did, in 1987.  He was a pioneer in the field of rocketry, having worked at Alamogordo NM White Sands Missile Range.

That 1997 art, not seen on the cover of "The General's President" is added to this portrait, seen here for the first time.

Like G. Harry Stine, Aleta went to working in the rocketry field, at the Rotary Rocket Co. (in her experience), by the mid 90’s. and moving to Mojave, CA and getting married to Dan DeLong.

At that point, I lost contact.

It was 2 months until I found out that she had passed away, which underscores the fact I’m totally out of touch with the community of Sci-fi astronomical social circles…

There’s a whole lot more about her life, but this was the person I knew from those years (1985-97)

Earth History And Lost Civilizations
From the cover of the book by Robert Shapiro, commissioned and published by Light Technology Publishing, 2003

This New-Age book was part of the "Explorer Race" series that included "Through Alien Eyes" and the "Shamanic Secrets" books (in this gallery)

The cover shown here was my originally intended idea. The one actually published has a "modern" Egyptian Sphinx, whose face was blasted out by Napoleon's artillery in the late 18th century...

The Mountains Of Mars
Originally an unused sketch idea, commissioned by Michael Berger in 2008, for a toy display backdrop.

With the work lying around, I later found a use for it, as the background of "Planar's Gift" (In this gallery).

For that book, it was set on a terraforming Mars, and, I added the stormy effects and water for dramatic effect.

The basis was the Coal Canyon region of northern AZ, so often the origin of many astronomical works in this gallery.

I loved the "Legions of Power" toys as a child as well as their excellent box art - imagine my delight at stumbling across the actual artist here on dA all these years later ;)

Thanks for the comment!

Didn't know LOP was sold in the UK! (assuming you got it there), but it's sobering that a 40 year old is looking back a having the toys and liking the art. Feels like I did them yesterday....

As I recall it was just one of the cheap pound-shops that had them in rather than any of the major toy stores so it's possible they'd arrived through one of the grey import routes that allowed a number of pretty obscure and unadvertised toylines to appear on our market. It did mean they were very affordable though and I still have a box full of the parts from a number of the sets sitting in a cupboard back at my parents' house :) It's nice to see your magnificent original art unencumbered by all the packaging graphics.

Hi! Your space art has been a real treat to see! Reminds me of a lot of the artwork in my granddad's scifi book collection. I wonder, could you have done some of that artwork? Very similar styles. Can't remember the names of any books unfortunately, just remember flicking through them for the pictures.

Thanks for the comment!

Anything older than 1981 is unlikely to be my cover art. But if you are very young, it could be a fact...Time files ^^;
