Astronomy and Clouds

Just to let you know that two of my paintings are now included in the Gallery of the Cloud Appreciation Society. One is a fantasy -- 'Cloudship' in oils -- and the other is of clouds and aurorae on the planet Jupiter. Astronomers are of course supposed to hate clouds because they interfere with viewing, which is true enough (especially when you travel thousands of miles to see a total eclipse!), but I love them, and love painting them -- whichever planet they're on.… Continue

Astronomy on the Brain



I never thought one of my paintings would end up as a podcast icon in iTunes, but here it is!



The icon illustrates the podcast The Universe in Mind by Ivan Semeniuk, current Journalist-in-Residence at the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics, University of Toronto. I met Ivan a few years ago, when he was hosting the astronomy news segment on the TV show Daily… Continue

Hi Def Daedalus

I won't leave it there for very long, but I have just done a VERY big new test animation render of my Daedalus model.

Before you try downloading it, you should be aware that it is Full 1080p High Definition, so you will need a big monitor to even view it, and the size is a whopping 72 megabytes, so a hefty broadband connection is a good idea!

Getting your 'InSANe' stuff onto your own web pages...

I just tried this and it works just fine...



If you want to include your photo slideshow from here on another site, just find the photos here, and let the slideshow start. At the end of the slideshow you should see two buttons, one marked "Replay" and one marked "Share". If you click on share, it will show the code you need to play the slideshow.



Just copy this, (using the button provded), and then paste it into the code for your web page, using your prefered HTML editor,… Continue

Blue Marble Next Generation

I suspect most people reading this will be aware of it, but just in case...

If you need some highly detailed images to make a CGI Earth model, then the NASA Blue Marblenext generation is the best I am aware of:

Also available for every month of the year, plus topography.

I dont know what to say about it.

I have been away from here for a while. Yesterday I came in to see what's new and I learned that one of my paintings has been chosen by Guest Editor Bettina Forget. You could have knocked me over with a feather. Honest. I was totally shocked. I really did'nt think it was a very good picture. It was done in only a couple hours, mainly for fun as all my paintings are done now just for fun. Gone are the days when I hoped to be the next Chesley Bonestell and spent days laboring over a single… Continue
