Drawn by Joe HF for the Galaxy. challenge and inspired by Space. Part of the album Space.


That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

-Carl Sagan

My impression of the famous Blue Marble image, zoomed out a bit to be more in-keeping with the galaxy theme.

Fantastic, Joe! :) —  Krissie
But where is the moon? Do more carl sagan stuff plz , drawing is awesome —  -----
@Agent NL-20 The moon is just to the right of the earth. At a distance, it's barely distinguishable from the background stars, as it's nearly on the far side of it's orbit. If you zoom in, you'll be able to see it more clearly. —  Joe HF
I'm actually wondering about using the vector nature of Sketchport to do a powers of 10 type concept, but it seems like a big project. —  Joe HF
