The above is one of a few astronaut illustrations I did for fun.
I find that I’m always in need of greeting cards; I seem to be one of the few people on the planet that still uses the mail for thank yous, hellos, and just just general queries, and some nice compact illustrations that fit on 1/4 of an 8.5 x 11 page are always in need. I’m jealous of some artists who seem to get finished looking sketches done every day – what a treat! I seem to either be running at 5 mph or 90 mph, either loose, loopy sketches that only I can figure out, or really detailed work that I obsess over. So my constant need of card images seems to justify that middle ground that I’m trying to develop; these are a result of that effort. Polished, but not too polished. Thought-out, but not too thought-out. Somewhere in the middle, the truth lies, grasshopper.
