Don Dixon is a Fellow and founding member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA). His space art has been honored by NASA and the New York Society of Illustrators and has been featured on the covers of Scientific American, Astronomy, Sky and Telescope, Bild der Wissenschaft, and dozens of books, ranging from physics textbooks to science fiction novels. His painting Red Mars, cover art for the first book in Kim Stanley Robinson's award winning trilogy, rode the Phoenix spacecraft to a successful landing in the arctic region on Mars in 2008 as part of the Planetary Society's digital Martian Library. He painted a remarkably accurate rendition of minor planet Pluto decades before it was photographed by the New Horizons probe.
