    Keith Birdsong Sci Fi Magazine #1 Cover Painting Isaac Asimov Original Art (Sovereign Media/NBC/Paramount, 1992). A joint venture between NBC and Paramount saw the first broadcast of the Sci Fi Channel in 1992. Plans for the channel started in 1989. Eventually both Gene Roddenberry and Isaac Asimov were on the advisory board for the creation of the new channel, unfortunately they both passed away before its launch. The month of the launch, a companion magazine was released with Isaac Asimov on the cover, as painted by Keith Birdsong, long-time painter of covers for Star Trek novels. This piece was produced in acrylic paint and color pencils on illustration board with an image area of 11" x 15". Signed in the lower image area, it is in Excellent condition.
