Space Vacation for Nickelodeon

May 7th, 2009 | 4 Comments

Last week I made this illustration for the July 2009 issue of Nickelodeon Magazine. The story is something along the lines of questions people wanted to ask. The question illustrated herein is “when will we take vacations in space?”
The answer, as we all know, is the year 2023. Probably sometime around late April.
And if you haven’t tried it already, you should spend a couple of days drawing rocket ships and planets like I did. It’s way fun.

Space Vacation

Update: here is the illustration in the magazine.

    Brush. I think I’m gonna make a post when the magazine comes out in a couple weeks showing the process of this drawing.

  4. Lori says:

    I love the picture. I’m doing a project with my students about space travel. I would love to use your picture for the instruction sheet. Would you mind if I use it?
