This picture is probably more typical of my general drawing style – although still more realistic than most. The figure was drawn using my trusty post office nib dip pen; the sky was a bit of a hodge-podge of india ink, markers, felt-tips and Tipp-Ex. It was then scanned and coloured in illustrator.
I was going for a kind of Kirbyesque look for the night sky, a feeling of something primeval awaiting the astronaut in outer space. The orange suit is a nod to Tintin’s spacesuit in Destination Moon.
