This piece took a while! The spring soccer season started (I coach two teams), plus I got laid off in the middle of producing it, so a lot of my spare (drawing) time got occupied with job-hunting. I’m pretty happy with how it came out – I like how I integrated my sig into the piece in a new way, and the realism elements look good. It honors Stephen Hawking, who (along with a number of other luminaries) is backing the Breakthrough Starshot project, an attempt to send small, light-propelled probes to another star system.
