Recently recognized as a top visionary of space cities by Reuters' International Design Magazine, Roy Scarfo has been a science and space art consultant-illustrator for The New York Times, GE, Sun Company, NASA, DOD, VOA and the U.S. Senate. His work is noted in the Congressional Record of both the 88th and 90th Congresses. He has received numerous commendations from this country’s highest officials. Roy has collaborated with many of our country’s greatest scientists and authors such as Dr. Werner von Braun, Isaac Asimov, Alvin Toffler, Willey Ley, and Dr. Dandridge M. Cole. For sixteen years, Roy served as creative art director for General Electric’s Space Technology Center in Valley Forge, PA.

Described as “a firmament of man’s imagination and other worlds beyond,” Roy's illustration and paintings have been reproduced in every prominent magazine and newspaper in the U.S. and throughout the world. Mondari Press Inc., New York City, has syndicated his work for release in France, Spain, Italy, England, Israel, Hong Kong, Canada, and South America. Roy's work has appeared in over forty books including his own book titled Beyond Tomorrow. A partial list of his TV credentials include “The Sky Beyond,” NBC, Frank McGee; “20th Century,” and “21st Century,” CBS, Walter Cronkite; and the TV one hour special based on Alvin Toffler’s best seller Future Shock narrated by Orson Welles.

Roy's first exhibit “Beyond Tomorrow” comprised of 35 paintings based upon his book opened the International Space Hall of Fame in Alamogordo, New Mexico, and was held there for over seven months. Exhibits of his work have appeared in numerous museums including the Smithsonian Institute. Numerous professional and art awards include two Philadelphia Gold Medal and one Silver Medal Awards, two Awards for Excellence and General Electric’s Space Award, usually reserved for engineers and scientists.

Roy's charts of the solar system and worlds beyond are in wide demand as visual aids in teaching and are being used in museums, observatories and other institutes and agencies.
