These are paintings I made to celebrate 50 years since the Apollo mission. They are based them on my amazing trip to Kennedy space centre earlier this year.
The five dinosaur drawings are for a project I did with students called ‘Jurassic Park reimagined’. It was to both celebrate 25 years since the films initial release and also as a nod to the difference in understanding of how dinosaurs may have looked since then and now.
My painting of the only Soviet reusable spacecraft launched into space – the Buran spaceshuttle.
I am fascinated by the Russian space shuttle Buran and saw one of the remaining ones in Moscow last year.
Sketch for Vostok rocket and final Painting. I discarded the earlier colour palettes.
I have always been fascinated by Sci-fi art, space travel and engineering, last year I visited the cosmonaut museum in Moscow, Russia and it gave my artwork a new boost and direction.
