The British Interplanetary Society (BIS) West Midlands Group will host a talk by the internationally renowned space artist David Hardy on Saturday 14 July 2012 from 14.00 to 16.00 at Droitwich Library in Worcestershire, UK.

Venue is limited to 50 seats so to avoid disappointment please register your attendance.

David A. Hardy is the longest-established space artist, having illustrated his first book in 1954. See his website here.

David will be presenting a review of space/astronomical art since the earliest days, from Lucien Rudaux and Chesley Bonestell, and R.A. Smith, but of course leaning heavily on his own work too! It includes images of how we thought space travel would develop, back in the 50s, and how our views of the universe have changed, from our own Moon and planets through to extrasolar planets and deep space. There will also be a short tutorial on how to produce a 'painting' using Photoshop.

Good day. David's talk was excellent, disappointed with the attendance though.

Many thanks to Steve Salmon FBIS for once again making the trek from London for this event.
