Hawking’s Breakthrough

Hawking's Breakthrough. Micron and fountain pens on Strathmore 500 Series Bristol Plate 2-Ply. 11" x 11"

This piece took a while! The spring soccer season started (I coach two teams), plus I got laid off from my software engineering job in the middle of producing it, so a lot of my drawing time got occupied with hunting for a new role. 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.
