Several vintage illustrations and textures have gone into this picture, with a Hubble space photograph as the background image; this last was altered and distorted by the top layers and by blending. All images from Wikimedia

I was inspired by The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham, the English science fiction author, which was first published in 1951. I say ‘inspired’ but in fact I was simply playing around with the various images and the end result made me think of triffids!
