    More Sci-Fi art. This time ship deck plans. Kind of Traveller or Star Frontiers themed.

    I'm told the second one looks like a Tholian ship. I didn't know they had double hulls. Once someone said "Star Trek", I added a saucer like ship to the mix.

    I think I finally got in sync with the design ethic of Star Trek. The first ship is the second ship spun around, re-scaled with a saucer on it. The second ship is an Antelope class ship from Star Smuggler. That ship is triangular, so I doubled everything and added a little neck to it.

    (At one time, I was drawing ship deckplans for SFB but Steve broke his leg and I had emergency surgery, so nothing came of it.)

    I dropped a pen into my bag and it leaked on some of my artwork. I was doing a series of Star Wars: Rebels styled drawings of characters for a game and wanted to redraw some of them that got ruined. I was working from photos of the originals. My son Paul purchased a poster of Rosie the Riveter and it really influenced my style on the redraws. I was working in pencil for the originals, but the new ones are in colored pencils, which I stole from my daughter.

    I really like the way it came out and now want to learn how to use colored pencils. The woman in the top image is the same as the bottom image, which I might have shared before. The bottom image is largely based on a submariner's fire fighting kit from the Royal Navy, circa 1980. The top image features the classic Rosie pose and a Mercury era space suit.

    I was going to share a link to my website to show off the other four images I finished this week, but I have greatly increased the number of ads. So, here are photos of the drawings here. All of them are pen and ink, some large areas were done with a brush.

    I did a couple of themed rockets, oddly enough from my memory of the ride, it's a small world. The white one looks more like the ride art, but the black background one looks better.

    These would make good phone backgrounds.

    I love it, but who am I thinking of who did similar work, not Klee or Kandinsky, but who. But love it!

    I like it. Thanks for posting it, for me it immediately brings back Escher and those impossible staircases. So it is inspirational for one onlooker!

    Maybe a frame for Briget Brophy? (Sp)

    Thanks for the kind words.

    And yes, Piet Mondrian is a favorite of mine.

    I was thinking Terry Frost, but he is a bit different. Our local museum has a whole wing devoted to Frost, but the artwork just outside each presentation area are different artists. Your painting looks a lot like these other artists that I can't name. The Albright-Knox went into a refurbishment phase, so I suspect these collections will be broken up and I won't be able to view them like they used to be displayed.

    Your painting is a like a ray of sunshine when you can't get out to the museum.

    I like the subtle shadings in the center sections! But the engineer in me wonders if it's 20 inches across the flats or the corners?

    Canvas sizes are expressed as h x w. And it is a nice, clean piece.

    It’s not art by any means but I did get a bit crafty a few days ago. I’ve been saving the nicer wine corks for some time, to use in some future, unspecified project. I found myself with a couple of spare, rare earth magnets and decided to make a couple of fridge magnets.

    I trimmed about a quarter of the thickness with a razor saw and a sanding block, drilled a shallow recess, sealed them with a couple of coats of satin spray acrylic, and stuck the self-adhesive magnets in place.

    But as displayed, the height and width are across the corners....

    Ordinary magnets will not stick to our stainless fridge. But they will stick to the stainless dishwasher, range hood, and wall ovens. Maybe the super-dooper ones would stick to the fridge.

    That’s hardly the poor canvas’ fault! Besides, they rarely display them that way in the art supply store.

    True. The canvas' flat edges are 20". That makes the diagonals 28.28", for a kind of numerical symmetry that pleases me.

    And thank you both for the compliments.
