Visions of "the Humanoids of OZ"

Back in 1976 Keith Basterfield and I collaborated on Australia's first catalogue collection of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (after Dr. J. Allen Hynek's definitions from his foundational book "The UFO EXperience - a scientific enquiry" (1972) and also popularised by Steven Speilberg's blockbuster "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977).  For this I drew a series of drawings for some of the cases.  Here are those drawings of mine.  These scans were handy but the originals are much sharper.  Maybe I will colorise them sometime:

Keith went on to specialised in the "entity" cases while I focused on UFO landing physical traces, given my background in physical chemistry as a laboratory and quality manager and chemist.
My old friend Ray Stanford, author of the classic work on the famous 1964 "Socorro Saucer in a Pentagon Pantry", recently supplied me with a revised accurate artwork originally done by John Lucas and colourised by Ray. Be prepaid for some fascinating developments on this remarkable case. Great artwork of a case that is both a CE2 & CE3.
