Several Miles Above the Surface of an Alien Planet…

I thought this piece would be a quick one but it ended up taking about a week.  I had to redo the text on the thought bubbles a few times before I was happy.  It’s only the first in a series based on The Hitchhiker’s Guide books (my favorite-favorite books).  I’ve done several drawings and paintings based on The Guide as it is such an fab source.  So much amazingly imaginative imagery to play with!  Visual reference material is great but there’s nothing like a great work of fiction to get the creative juices flowing and keep the imagination and freehand drawing skills sharp
