A few weeks back my Dad forwarded me an email about an art contest that his company was having. The concept was basically just to come up with something showing how satellites help people. The only problem was that 'officially' there were only two age brackets and I just so happen to be about 'double' the 'maximum age'. I have a vague memory of my Dad finding this exchange from the Simpsons particularly amusing and when I heard contest for kids this is immediately where my brain went and I knew I had to send in an entry. So, without further ado, here is my entry for the contest:
My Dad made it pretty clear that my submission was just for fun so as not to ruffle any feathers, and I also sent along a black and white copy as well if they ever need coloring pages for a real take your kid to work day at some point in the future. All in all the whole process was a lot of fun and gave me quite a few chuckles along the way. And if someone at Viasat wants to send me a telescope well...I certainly wouldn't object :)
Thanks for visiting my Ardt Blog. You may see a few colors pop up here and there as you scroll down through my work, but for the most part I tend to do mostly pen & ink and pencil illustrations. I'm always coming up with various projects for myself to work on so you'll see a fairly decent variety of subjects. Please reach out to me through the contact page if you're interested in purchasing a print of anything you happen to like or for any commission inquiries if there's something specific you'd like to see.
