Shoes Make The Man

I didn't think I was starting to work on more astronauts yet but what I think and what I do sometimes aren't in sync and it's often better that way. At least when it comes to artwork that is.

I found myself unexpectedly inspired by this cover: the federal finance minister getting new shoes for the budget this past spring.

Here was my first go at my version of this but I got stuck at this point. It sat there for months until I found myself back in astronaut territory and it just came together.

Called The Right Shoe I am quite happy with it now, not just with how it turned out but that I am starting to work on astronauts again. This makes me extraordinarily happy.
