12th May

DP 132

I decided to try drawing with dark grey felt tip instead of my usual black.

The drawing is an interpretation of a scientific photograph of erosion on Mars. The photographs that have been coming out of NASA's missions to Mars are just visually beautiful as well as being scientifically important. I'm a big fan of the scientific exploration of space, plus NASA is also doing a lot of important work here on Earth, such as documenting the changes in the ice levels at the polar caps.

Interestingly, NASA also has a long history of working collaboratively with artists.
