Calling All Satellites (2018)

Inspiration for this piece was really just the interest in satellites and control towers. As I started sketching, I stumbled on the idea of a layout where it was uncertain if ‘contact’ was being made from the ground or from the sky. As I keep progressing with the piece, I figured out the dimensional aspect of having the satellites that were more in the foreground align with the outer rings and vice versa.

Once I started coloring the piece, the design of the sky changed several times. Originally I wanted UFOs in the sky but ended up scrapping that idea for a more homogenous black sky. Working mostly with Posca acrylic paint pens for this piece, it allowed me to fix mistakes or segments that didn’t look right.
