I still think blue and red are the best colors for space paintings, given that the real colors aren't visible to our human eyes. Add a line of pink clouds and you have instant spaceability. I used more blotter paper work on the red stuff, plus brushwork. Illuminating gas is always an astronomical image enhancer.
My work on Bizmac has been hampered by a bad cold which developed into bronchitis and has cost me days of work. I haven't been Productive and it bothers me. I am a good red-pink-and-blue American and believe that Productivity is the most important thing to have. Meanwhile I stare at dazzling work by 21-year-old Chinese illustrators and realize how far away my goal of being an Illustrator is.
"Threads of Light" is the usual, October 1991.
