    Paul Alexander - "Blast Off" Painting Original Art (undated). Paul Alexander is regarded by his SF-illustrator peers as one of the top "gadget" artists working for the paperback market -- as Vincent DiFate put it, Paul Alexander excelled at showcasing "the stunningly exotic damsel in distress, the fearsome, or even comical Bug-Eyed Monster", and most especially, his hallmarked, "giant ships plying the skies of earth or the currents of deep space." The image area of this painting measures 14.25" x 24.25", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "Aside from comic book or comic strip artwork, I was also interested in finding interesting paintings or other illustrations from the science fiction or science fields -- as long as there was (once again) some connection to space or astronomy or rockets. This actinic painting is intriguing -- a space ship taking off from some Stonehenge-like launch pad? -- but it's full of color and light and action and so very appealing."
