Spaceboy

Space is the place, for unlimited adventure!

Created in 2006, the same year as my son was born. At the time I was clearly thinking about boys and space and sharing my love of space stuff with my boy!

For this piece I drew heavily from a book of old sci-fi posters and book covers. Most of them were published before I was born, further reinforcing the theme of multi-generational love of space and the possibilities it holds.

This piece sold a couple of months before my son was born. It was at a large exhibition / art sale which I didn’t attend in person, so I never got to meet the buyer. I like to think that he / she shared my love of space and perhaps also had a son or daughter to pass that on to.
