Tug of Awe

There really have been some beautiful space cards posted on the blog. During the summer WOTAN and the Philosophic Toad posted the Race Into Space cards by Brooke Bond Tea including the 'Lunar Shuttle' below, no.48. Like Grif and the 'dumb-bell' I knew I'd seen it before.
The 'Space Tug'! That's it. Pictured below in Countdown comic March 20th 1971 [and again, previously on the blog, this time courtesy of Darth]. Wonder what the original looked like?
..which would appear to be this painting from March 9th 1970
But who was the artist?
