This illustration is of cheeky children aliens firing a cataput at an astronaut was painted in photoshop to a format 8″ × 10″. I wanted the aliens to look old fashioned but have a clear pose and attitude. The astronaut and the moon module are based on ones from the 1960s for the Apollo moon landings. The intention in the image is that the astronaut has already been hit by one missile. In reality the moon is a very grey place so the purple band of stars and the gold coloured parts of the module add some colour to the scene. Digitally painted in 2010.
