Footnotes and Queries: 2. Space Craft

If you go back through all my previous work it’s pretty easy to see that I like a bit of space. Faceless astronauts are my forte. I even spent a good amount of time in my last year of uni creating my own take on Stephen Hawking’s ‘A Brief History of Time’. So this particular query felt like it was made for me. When I thought about ‘making’ a planet my mind immediately wandered to this PES video, which I’m sure just about everyone has seen by now, and how fun that could be. It’s safe to say that that video massively inspired the concept for this Footnotes and Queries. But in reality I’m pretty sure it’s nothing like that, as much as I’d like it to be. So I guess I just have to settle for drawing it myself instead.
