I saw a film with John Lithgow and Bob Hoskins about the story of Don Quixote de la Mancha. It's a really fascinating story and I thought I'd do a fun little character illustration of them wandering through the desert. It ended up being quite large so I've included a close-up of it too.

I started out doing this piece for fun but it turned into something else and I think it'll look great on my envelopes... a more personal touch to sending out promotional material with my own stationary art. I really love all that whole post-war classic retro sci-fi aesthetic, it's so much more fun and optimistic, the innocence of the genre in a way. I plan to do futher illustrations like this and Return to Planet Bowie... ...that doesn't actually mean I'll be returning to planet Bowie... I'll shut up now.
