For a little while, I'm going to limit this page to sketches. Right now, I'm in a retro, sci-fi frame of mind. I have been entranced for years by the eerie beauty of the David Bowie song "Major Tom- a space oddity" ( I think that's the right title) as well as the Weird, uber-creepy Peter Schilling version of Major Tom and, of course, Bowie's "Ashes to ashes". I am perfectly aware that Major Tom is a fairly conventional astronaut and not a space-opera hero, but I always sort of see him as a Flash Gordon/Buck Rogers kinda guy. To that end, I did the following sketch of Major Tom... obvioulsy this happened before he burned up on re-entry, or drifted off into the Void or O.D.'ed or whatever. Enjoy.
