Welcome to Apollo Arts, where I showcase my Fine Art Drawings of man's greatest adventure: Project Apollo.

All my original artwork is created by hand, using graphite pencils on paper. I also create all of my Fine Art Prints myself, using archival inks and Fine Art paper in order to keep the highest quality of each print under my control.

I hope that you will leave here with both, my excitement and enthusiasm for the incredible adventure that is space exploration, and my appreciation for the thousands of people that have made it happen.

I am an artist member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA), a member of the National Space Society and The British Interplanetary Society.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Hi everyone,

I recently finished my portrait of Apollo 15 astronaut "Jim Irwin". It's going to be included (in digital form) in an exhibition called, "The Beauty of Space" that will be hosted by the US Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. For the exhibit, the portrait is digitally  combined with the ones of Dave Scott and Al Worden to make up the complete Apollo 15 crew.

Prints of these pictures are now available to purchase through the links under each picture in the Gallery.

Since all shows that I was hoping to exhibit at this year have been cancelled, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this website is the only place where you can buy these fine art prints, which are individually made by myself.

On another note, I was recently honored to be invited to make a presentation to the Space Hipsters Facebook Group. I did this along with three of my IAAA buddies, who are fantastic artists in their own right; Aldo Spadoni (IAAA President), Lucy West and Mark Pestana.

In addition to seeing some of each artists work, you will hear stories about how we got started creating space art and the individual stories behind the artwork that we created. 

You can see the whole hour long event here here:


It was great fun, and there will be more events like this in the future, with different artists.

Stay safe and stay home everyone. - Doug - August/September, 2020

Doug Forrest - Apollo Reflections

I was interviewed at Spacefest X in 2019 and asked to reflect on the Apollo Program and its influences on my artwork.

Many thanks to Jeremy Theoret and his company Apollospace for allowing me to share it here with you.

The Space Show - Interview...

I was asked to guest on the online radio program, "The Space Show", at the beginning of November, 2018. It's hosted by Dr. David Livingstone and has been running for about 18 years, with all sorts of interesting topics explored. There is an archive of every one of them that can be searched on the website.


This is the link for the show that I'm on:
