David A. Hardy «UFO» 2002.


«It is hard to realize that David Hardy is one of the senior members of the space art community ... perhaps the senior member if we limit ourselves to astronomical art (his youthful appearance ~ he looks a decade younger ~ may perhaps be due to his passionate interest in rock music. Then again, perhaps not). Born in 1936 he has been working as a professional astronomical artist for nearly fifty years, making his first sale when he was 18 years old when he contributed eight black and white illustrations to Patrick Moore's Sun, Myths and Men ... at the same time beginning a life-long relationship with the famed astronomer.»
