Hey! Been a little while... August was a month full of trial and error, and experimentation. I've reconnected with a few books, stories, and characters I've always--or recently--loved. This painting in particular is revisiting one of my favorite short stories: Kaleidoscope by Ray Bradbury. As my favorite author of all time, I find it very appropriate to illustrate a work of his in the midst of his passing.
This is my first time painting space; very exciting! I've utilized NASA's wonderful archive of photographs to supply reference for this piece. If you have yet to take a look, you should!
