Astronomy In Motion, Space Animation and Art by Lonny Buinis

About L.B.

After I saw the motion picture "2001: A Space Odyssey" on its first release
(yes, I am from the Pleistocene!) I was inspired.
I wondered, "What would astronomical objects really look like if we could visit them?"
I started to paint.

A little later, I was told you can't put acrylic paint in an airbrush.
I did.

Then, when the accepted way to record animation was taping it one frame at a time,
I played it live from RAM.

Since then, a lot of technology happened.
It changed how we see space subjects.

 
Now, I like to make them move!
