Special thanks to
for my second DD here at Deviant Art!
I've noted a surge in the interest of space, and astronomical art, which is espically heartwarming, as it was my first love, and my original inspiration, way back in the late 1970's
"Lagrange Point" was one of many works, done during the years before I broke into Space/Sci-Fi/Fantasy, in 1983. My early inspirations, were Kelly Freas, Michael Whelan, Alex Schomburg, Dean Ellis, Bob McCall, David Hardy, and many more, doing covers for Science Fiction Analog, and the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Rick Sternbach, Don Dixon were two I met, in LA in those formative years, and my first jobs, were at NASA, doing illustrations for the Venus Radar Mapper, in 1982, while still at Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, CA.
In more recent years, after the collapse of the "mid list" Sci-Fi book cover market, and a brief surge in card game illustration, in the 90's, I turned to Anime fanart. I've been incorporating many astronomical ideas in these works. The recent surge of Kindle based self publishing is encouraging, for Sci-Fi/Fantasy cover art, and I've had my first astronomical commissions in many years, in 2012.
Someday, I hope the interest in space, has us returning back to the stars. There are so many discoveries yet to be made!
