Out Of The Atmosphere

The journey beyond Earth's atmosphere has captured peoples imaginations for years including mine. The curiosity of what lies beyond prompted man to venture into space and that same curiosity inspired this illustration. Not even I know what this astronaut has discovered but the look on his face says it all.

Lego Chest

Have you ever had a moment when you discover something from your childhood that lights up your imagination and take's you back to being a kid? If you've ever had a moment similar to this you could probably understand my excitement when my dad discovered my old Lego chest in the ceiling. I felt like a pirate who had just found the treasure he had been tirelessly searching for all his life. I began rummaging through the chest discovering things I had built 10 years back, it was like searching through a visual history of my imagination. I tried to capture that sense of amazement in this illustration which gave me the opportunity to play with light and how it affects mood. I'm happy to say I spent the rest of the weekend playing with my Lego.
