Ambush, 14 x 17″
Greg Manchess

When I was a kid, given the opportunity to choose which toy set to own–the cowboys and ranch, the GI soldiers, the knights and castle, or the spacemen and moon-base–I took the moon-base every time. Like the helmets I’ve shown here, I’ve always been excited by the astronaut image: vintage, real, or futuristic.

I feel at home here on Muddy, and figured you all would understand this interest. So, I’ve started a series I hope to continue, based on that long desire to imagine science fiction the way I used to as a kid without the painting skills.

This one, entitled, “Ambush,” will be on display at this year’s Spectrum LIVE 2.
