One area of art that is very underrated, and seems to only appeal to people in the aviation industry, is aviation and space art. This was a really nice tribute to him, who I have never herd of by name. Its an issue near and dear to my heart, all the art work of the space shuttle and early X-planes that both myself, and my Father, were part of. I loved seeing him painting the orange of the X-1 which my Father was a big part of that program as an Aeronautical engineer for Bell Aircraft. Most people do not know of the history of the X-1 beyond Yeager breaking the sound barriar in "Glamous Glennis". Or that there were actually 3 of the first X-1's made. That program extended well past Yeagers first feat into the 50's, into the X-1A, and X-1B and were not orange in color. The X-2 both were lost, none exist today, and I remember the Day Dad cryed when one of them was lost over Lake Onterio, killing the Bell Test Pilot, and a B29 crewman. All part of a problems called the "Ulmer Gasket Theory", that led to explosions on these X-planes due to failing gaskets with the fuels. Many of my Dads programs are in the Smithsonian, and depicted on Art like this. He would be very proud of that. Now the program I was devoted to is also heading for the Smithsonian and other museums, and artwork of this era to me is wonderful. For myself, I did not know he did some of the shuttle mission path designs, as you saw one of the Challenger patches, came from this artist. This was a very neat post, I really enjoyed it.
