I've finally found a moment to reassemble my online gallery. I've culled away some of the works and thrown some other things into the mix (including the thumbnails above). The gallery is by no means comprehensive but I hope you enjoy it.

Rocket scientist Wernher von Braun wrote that he had "learned to respect, nay fear, this wonderful artist's obsession with perfection. My file cabinet is filled with sketches of rocket ships I had prepared to help in his artwork—only to have them returned to me with blistering criticism."
Below is an image of Bonestell Crater on mars, named in Chesley Bonestell's honor: .

The Immortal Augustus Gladstone
The above is one of the most recent youtube videos from Augustus Gladstone which, because of a posting on boingboing.net, has recieved a bit of attention.
My Tinselman blog has virtually silent for some time; the few of you who've paid close attention know why... I was beginning work on a documentary. I explain it this way on The Immortal Augustus Gladstone blog...
I began the early planning for this film about a year ago; we were looking for the right subject (meaning person) but had no luck. So we regrouped and changed our strategy and that’s when, through sheer happenstance, we discovered Augustus on YouTube.
We will continue to keep you abrest of our production at our blog.
There's more at the Official Augustus Gladstone website.

I love the HD camera on the iPhone 4. It may not be the best camera in the world, but it's always with me, no matter where I'm at. I've recently begun a blog -- Robyn's Posterous -- mostly devouted to the stuff I photograph with this camera.

As a kid, I always thought race cars were so incredibly cool looking. Fast, sleek, colorful... like toys. Somewhere along the long, race cars changed; the cars themselves seemed to disappear beneath a barrage of advertisements. This short video explains it all so well...

Blues ≠ Monkeyjunk
What else is to be said?
The first video I posted of blues artist Son House was mysteriously removed at its source. Here's an excellent replacement... Death Letter Blues!

I love these matte paintings by John P. Fulton, from the 1931 production of Dracula. (For scale, look for the tiny carriage in each.)
