Spacecraft Drawings 1979-1989

Spaceship Photos Someone left a nice comment on my old spaceship drawing post, and this prompted me to pull down my old archive and flip through it. I ended up posting a photos of them to Flickr, with commentary.

If you’re interested in reliving my childhood, check out the new photo set! Here are some samples, from earliest to most recent :-)

    Hi, David,
    Liked the link to the acting stuff below.  Also liked viewing your drawings.  It prompted some discussions of childhood (Re: Yamata et al) with friends.  Best

    It makes me want to start an archive now of drawings that I’ve been doing on everyday things. I love the progression and it reminds me of being in second grade and drawing boba fett suits. My friend Chris and I were obsessed with making our own boba fett suits and drew literally hundreds of them.

    I used to do drawings like this all the time when I was in middle school and start high school. Mine weren’t spaceships, I always drew robotic animals like a mecha-tiger with guns on it or a robotic spider with crazy blade legs.

    Unfortunately, my house burned down when I was 15 and the drawings were lost. Posts like this make me wish I had them. Maybe I’ll just have to start making more.

    Thanks! Brought back memories. In my case it was subs, though I eventually got a job with NASA :-)

A message from Dave:

I believe we all benefit when we respectfully share our perspectives on common experiences. My house rules are "please be respectful of divergent views" and "enjoy the flow of ideas!"
