For a time, cactus, sagebrush, mountains and skies dominated his artistry and he made something of a name for himself as a painter of southwestern landscapes. By the late 1970s, however, he discovered he could not be content to limit his art to just desert scenes. Popular films of the day like Star Wars and Close Encounters rekindled a love of science fiction that he knew as a youngster. Soon alien landscapes and space ships captivated his creativity. Beginning in 1980 and throughout the following decade, Jim painted numerous UFO illustrations that have been published internationally. His notoriety in the field of UFO research earned him a co-host seat on a weekly, public access television program in Tucson, produced by Ted Loman, entitled UFOAZ Talks. This popular award-winning program ran from 1991 through 1997 and was aired on public access channels across the country.
Currently, after so many years of painting fine art and illustration, Jim has expanded his creative talents to include sculpting as well, thus bringing an added dimension to his legacy of artistic skill.
Now, for the first time, noted artist, James Nichols, has compiled a stunning visual portfolio including 40 of his most incredible original UFO illustrations. Nichols’s artwork has been featured in books, periodicals, and video media worldwide. This dramatic illustration collection spans twenty years of in-depth research. Many of his depictions are based on actual eyewitness accounts. More than just a collection of exciting UFO visions, James Nichols shares a detailed account of his own personal odyssey into UFO research as well as the secret story behind each unique image. The final result of this engaging combination of UFO art and commentary is an insightful overview of the unsolved enigma of Unidentified Flying Objects.

"This book is like nothing I've seen before in the UFO community and I've seen most of them. The story behind each of the paintings kept me wanting more. Jim has captured to perfection what the field of UFOlogy has been buzzing about for the last sixty years as well as the future to come."
