Radio show and Apollo 50th Anniversaries …

I am pleased to announce that I've been invited to be a guest on "The Space Show"; an online radio show ( on November 4, at 12 noon, If you're not familiar with the show, it is hosted by Dr. David Livingstone and has been running for 18 years. Thanks to "The X-15 Rocket Plane" book author Michelle Evans, who introduced me to David, after we met at OuteRimCon. 

I have also been chosen to have one of my drawings; "Apollo 8" published in the December/January issue of the Smithsonian Air & Space magazine and on the magazine's website. Fellow IAAA artists Mark Pestana, Robin Hart and Mark Garlick have also been chosen. The article is to be about the famous Apollo 8 Earthrise image.

It's getting close to the holiday season and the Apollo 8 50th Anniversary in December. I'm currently busy gathering research material for new ideas relating to the  Apollo 11 50th next year. I've already started working on some of those and I hope to have lots of new pieces done for summer, 2019.

It's been a good year for displaying at art shows: the most recent being OuteRimCon for the 2nd year at the Columbia Memorial Center in Downey, California. If you're not familiar with this museum, it's right in the same location where the Apollo Command Modules were built by North American Rockwell.

The other shows that I've been involved with this year are: Yuri's Night LA, Space Tech Expo, the National Space Society's International Space Development Conference, Spacefest IX and the AIAA's "Neil's Day" Apollo 50th Anniversary - the last seeing a surprise and unscheduled visit and talk by Buzz Aldrin.

I also hope that you share 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.
