On this page we salute the music, art, film and computer animation of artists and musicians who've been inspired by the music of Hawkwind. Whether it's pencil and paper, ink ( or ) oil-paint, air-brush ( or ) the HW-influenced Spacerock and Electronic Music of musicians and bands ( -or the work of film makers and computer animators ). You'll find articles on these Hawkwind-inspired Creative Talents here!
This David Hardy painting ( -used on the back cover of Hawkwind's "Hall of the Mountain Grill" album ) is a fitting symbol for this page. While I'm not sure Mr. Hardy is a fan of Hawkwind's music, his phenomenal Space Art perfectly suits the album!
On this page, you'll learn about the many people who've been inspired by Hawkwind's music and who've taken up pencil, paint, airbrush, bass, guitar and synth ( -as well as film, video and com- puter program ) to follow in the creative footsteps of this incredibly influential Spacerock band! If this describes YOU, drop us a line. We'll give you some free publicity on this page! -DAVID HARDY'S "MTN GRILL" COVER.

"Hi! My name's Tomm Buzzetta ( St. Louis, Mo., USA ) . Aside from running the "Creative Tech Nerds" website you're reading -I'm also into synths and electronic-music.
