Heavenly body – 17-10-18 (sold)

 

I was going to name this one ‘across the universe’ after the Beatles song but when I was completing the drawing I heared Madonna’s ‘Lucky Star’ and all of a sudden the lyrics ‘heavenly body’ popped out, hence the title. In this drawing I kept to my search for combining surrealism, realism, impressionism and cubsim. It’s also an ode to Voyager II that, so I read the other day, just has left our solar system. The first man made object ever done so.
