Great Aunt Velma on space patrol.

The City of Tempe commissioned this piece, asking me to work from photos archived at The Tempe Historical Museum.

Rocketeer was shown for the first time at the Tempe Center for the Arts in June of 2012. It was later moved to the Tempe Historical Museum. Last time I saw it, it was hanging in the lobby beside their fabulous Launch Pad Rocket Ship Ride. You can ride for a quarter.
