Creating Space Newsletter/Blog

I've just launched a newsletter/blog called Creating Space. I invite you all to check it out and consider joining the email list.

Creating Space is about the space art that I create and the spacey things that inspire, delight, amuse and bemuse me. I explore the intersection of space history, pop culture, and art.

If you are a Space Geek like me (and I suspect many of you are) who has an interest in art, books, and collectibles relating to spaceflight history and space exploration, I believe you will find enjoyment in Creating Space.

February’s Creating Space post is up. I write about the issue of LIFE magazine that helped set the course for my life and share news about an upcoming art show.

The Creating Space post for March is up. This time I show you a rare contractor model of a 1962 Lunar Excursion Module concept. I trace how the thinking about how to land on the Moon evolved from the 1940s to the early 1960s. And, I share my rendering of a 1962 Lunar Excursion Module design on the Moon in the style of some of the concept artwork of the time.

April’s Creating Space post is up. This issue of Creating Space celebrates the Space Shuttle. It was forty-two years ago this month that Columbia first spread her wings and successfully orbited the Earth. Befitting this anniversary, I am very excited to share with you my latest work of art depicting a Shuttle launch. I also explore the pages of a 1983 children’s space book about the then-new Space Shuttle. Creating Space is steadily nearing the one-hundred subscriber milestone. In this post, a special token of my appreciation awaits all readers of Creating Space. I hope you will find occasion to benefit from it.

This month Creating Space commemorates fifty years since the launch of Skylab, the United States’ first space station. I look back at how the idea for Skylab began and how its early design evolved. I also share a rare model of an early orbital workshop configuration. In later posts, I plan to show how the Skylab configuration matured and share more models and period artwork. I am thrilled to let you know that Creating Space has surpassed the one-hundred subscriber milestone! Don’t miss the special discount on my artwork for readers of Creating Space at the bottom of the post.

This month’s Creating Space post contains a time sensitive announcement. I am thrilled to share some exciting news about an art event at Seattle’s Museum of Flight that I will be participating in. See the Art News section of the article for details. The Space Art of the Month is my illustration called Moonlight Dreams. I take you behind the scenes to show you the many space age items that inspired this dreamy scene.

NOTE: If you enjoyed my previous post where I kicked off a multi-article discussion of Skylab with a look at the origins of the program, I will be continuing the Skylab thread in upcoming posts.

The July issue of Creating Space celebrates the tenth anniversary of the creation of the collectSPACE insignia. I take a look back at how it came to be, and share the creative process that led to the design. And, I highlight some extreme adventures the logo has been on in its first ten years of existence. In art news, I take you along with me to preview the Art+Flight exhibition at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.

This month's edition of Creating Space extends the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversaries of the Skylab missions with a continuation of the discussion about the space station's early development. This time, I talk about the Apollo boosters that were being studied in the early 1960s and the stages that made up the rockets, one of which would be chosen to house the Skylab Orbital Workshop.

Creating Space continues the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversaries of the Skylab missions by looking at the design evolution of the workshop. The Skylab space station, as we know it, began as little more than an empty rocket stage, and grew to a purpose-built cluster of scientifically-focused modules.

This edition of Creating Space is the fourth in a series of posts that commemorate the fiftieth anniversaries of the Skylab missions with a continuation of the discussion about the space station's early development. This time, I talk about the transition from a "wet" workshop to a "dry" concept, the decision to use a Saturn V booster, and I describe the components which made up the final Skylab Orbital Workshop configuration.

This month's edition of Creating Space continues the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversaries of the Skylab missions. The third and final crewed mission launched on November 16, 1973. I take an in-depth look into a large-scale contractor model depicting an early concept of what was then known as the Saturn Apollo Applications Cluster Configuration. The model is a rare and fine example of the models built by the Marshall Space Flight Center model shop during the early years of the U.S. space program.

Creating Space rounds out this year of Skylab anniversary posts with a look inside a pop-up book published in 1974, the year the final crew returned to Earth. I offer a final reminder that there are only a few weeks left to make your visit to the Museum of Flight’s Art+Flight exhibition in Seattle and see my Moonlight Dreams artwork in person. I introduce you to Mission Mail, a newsletter from The Space 3.0 Foundation, in which I was recently featured. And, I lead off by marking a personal milestone for my own NERDSletter.

The latest Creating Space post has been published. In the previous post, I introduced readers to a children’s book that inspired my latest Lunar Module rendering. This time, I take you inside the book, with a focus on the illustrations, to explore the Apollo lunar mission events and perhaps learn some things along the way.

The March edition of Creating Space has been published. In the previous post, I took readers on a journey through a children’s book that inspired my latest Lunar Module rendering. Many of the illustrations contained in the book appear to trace their origins to paintings created by noted space artist, Pierre Mion. Now, I share my experience of visiting Pierre at his Arizona home in 2017.

Creating Space travels back in time to the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair to look at yesterday's future in space. This is part one of a two-part series about how space figured prominently throughout the exhibits and pavilions, and even the fairgrounds themselves. I am also excited to announce that I will be exhibiting my space-inspired artwork at the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame Induction weekend events this year.

The latest Creating Space post has been published. The previous installment covered a multitude of space-themed exhibits, pavilions, and fairground features at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. I teased at the end of that post that there was a whole other world of space to explore at the fair. Wait no longer, because we are now about to enter a place set aside especially for space exploration. It’s time to put on your silver spacesuit, secure your bubble helmet, and launch straight into the U. S. Space Park at the World’s Fair!
