I drew this image in 2003 for my thesis project in graduate school, which explored how interactive layouts and content-based design could create specific and unique reading experiences in digital comics. My pencil drawing was made using the blind contour technique, where I looked at what I was drawing, but not the paper I was drawing on. I later looked at the paper while rendering the image in ink. The image was then scanned into the computer and imported into Flash, where I designed and programmed the user interface and interactivity.
In 2011, I used white paint to attach the planet and moon and darkened some lines with a pen. The planet was panel art from my 2010 comic Martian Debut. The moon was panel art from my 2009 comic Super Duper Ham: Day One.
I revisited the collage in 2015 to add some color.
