Gerda and Hans Lotzmann:
Ulli, Christian, and Martina in 2003
|Journal Contributor Ulrich Lotzmann has been a close
friend of both Pete Conrad and Alan Bean. He is co-editor of the Alan Bean Gallery
and writes, "It was Al's artwork that motivated me to buy an easel,
brushes, and acrylic paints - I had never painted before." Some of
Ulli's acrylic paintings are linked here.
In December 2002, Ulli began to produce sketches which, for us, capture the spirit of Apollo better than any body of work other than Al Bean's paintings.
Ulli writes, "The sketches are also my personal tribute to the men and women of International Latex Corp. and of Hamilton Standard Devision of United Aircraft Corp., who designed and manufactured the most special 'spaceships' ever built - the Apollo Space Suits with their portable life support systems (PLSSs)."
It is a pleasure to make the Sketchbook available to readers of the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal.
Eric Jones and Ken Glover
