Sunshine Supernova

By Sam Dietze | March 19, 2017

This is not a hack. It’s my new painting in oils on canvas, 36×48 (inches), 2017. The title comes from 2 songs: Sunshine Superman by Donovan, and Champagne Supernova by Oasis.

Shuttle on the Crawler

By Jackie Burns | March 17, 2017

This is quite a big canvas for me – 25×30 inches. Acrylic.


By David A. Hardy | March 16, 2017

Anniversary! On March 16, 1966, command pilot Neil Armstrong and pilot David Scott successfully docked their Gemini VIII spacecraft with the Agena target vehicle, the first-ever linking of two spacecraft together in Earth orbit. Obviously nobody was there to photograph this historic event — another reason why we need space artists!

Charlie Duke – Apollo 16

By Jackie Burns | March 6, 2017

Digitally drawn with Adobe Sketch on my iPad using an Apple iPen. I am beginning to really like drawing in layers. Very convenient.

Watercolor ink pointillism on illustration board, 7″x16″ This piece was produced from a three-minute video I took on my smart phone during the OSIRIS-REx launch from Launch Complex 41 on September 8, 2016. The video was taken from the water’s edge at the Space View Park located in Titusville. The weather was absolutely clear with … Continue reading Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 7:05 PM EDT

Space Quilt

By Jackie Burns | February 27, 2017

I made this quilt in 2002 as a direct response to the 2001 Astrium Workshop held in the U.K. Most of the materials I personally swept up from the floor of the Blanket Manufacturing Room at Astrium (a satellite manufacturing company in Stevenage, UK) whilst attending the workshop. I had been so taken with the … Continue reading Space Quilt

Apollo In Digital Graphite

By Jackie Burns | February 27, 2017

This is a digital drawing using Adobe Sketch with an Apple Pen on an iPad Pro. The image was drawn to a page size of A2…ooof! I’ve used exactly the same technique of lead shading and colouring as I would have with my usual selection of lead pencils (HB, B1 through to B6) and Derwent … Continue reading Apollo In Digital Graphite

Shuttle night launch sketch

By Garry Harwood | September 27, 2016

Begun some months ago now, this is a first pass oil sketch on panel entirely made up of coloured glazes over a rough monochrome underpainting rubbed out down to the white ground for the highlights. Before I go too far with it now it’s dry, I’d like to hear from those who’ve witnessed a night … Continue reading Shuttle night launch sketch

Another joint effort with Ali…

By Nick Stevens | July 11, 2016

Another joint image with Ali. This time I wanted to go with a silhouette, and I figured that a ramjet would be ideal, for the fine elements of the funnel to show up against the bright background. We are rather pleased with the result! What do you think? Nick

#1 …”Outback Sand Dunes” #2…. “Nasser Dam”

By Corinne Cowan | July 9, 2016

These are poured acrylics, 2 of 8 I just installed at our local airport. The series is called Earthscapes. Acrylic paint is mixed with pouring medium and a little water. I poured a base of one or two colors, let it dry and added others on top. A liner brush was used to extend the … Continue reading #1 …”Outback Sand Dunes” #2…. “Nasser Dam”
