This was a attempt to move firmly away from my normal style, and I think it works. It was inspired by, (of all things) a set of posters at my local fitness centre, where they had rainbow splotches on a white background, with an overlaid silhouette. The idea of using a spectrum instead of a simple rainbow came quickly, so then I wanted something suitably “solar” for the centrepiece!
I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.
I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject. Go to the artist's portfolio
