In Remembrance of Space Artist Frank Hettick

I just wanted to take this opportunity to alert the members of the International Space Art Network

of the death last week of member Frank Hettick.

 

Frank created a lot of space art in a style reminiscent of that of Chesley Bonestell. You can see some of Frank's artwork on his Sky-High Gallery web site at…

Hi Jim,

It's chucking it down over here. My german shepherd refuses to believe that walkies has been cancelled due to heavy rain, despite my opening up both the front AND the back door so that he can check out the weather either end of the house. I'm sure he feels I've organised the torrential downpour just to annoy him! He's now sulking on his bed...and giving me sad eyes.

Hi Jim,
Hey, great to hear from you, my friend. Hope this coming year treats you kindly as well. Regarding my profile pic, yeah, it's amazing what a little bit of Photoshop can do for one's image. My only regret is you can't see the Hawaiian shirt under my spacesuit.
Ciao,
Aldo
