Shuttle with Manned Booster



In the spring of 1981, I was a student at Art Center College of Design. At this time, I was struggling to adapt normally mundane assignments, to accomodate my love for space and sci-fi subjects.

Often, if an assignment asked for "animals", I'd put in a dinosaur (it's an animal-right...) or a "wall scene" might have some kind of alien, or robot standing in front of it...

In some cases, the subject matter was not important, and, I used the opportunity here, to do an old concept, of a space shuttle on a manned booster, lifting off from Cape Canaveral.

This ended up as the April 1985 cover of the L5 News, of the L5 Society-called "elf hive" by those of us in the group...
