I started this illustration during a meeting and inked it with brush pens at home. This robot is walking into the gloom of the primordial jungle.
These are strange days. I hope everyone is staying safe and sound out there. I made an illustration inspired by the science fiction movie, Prospect. In the movie Prospect a man and his teenage daughter encounter nonstop danger while searching for valuable gems on a forested alien moon. The atmosphere of the moon is toxic to humans, so they have to wear their space suits throughout the movie. The movie was filmed in the temperate rainforests of Washington State.
In my illustration, a working-class grunt of the future has accidentally discovered the apex predator of the toxic moon Ymir Two. His day of taking mineral readings just became a great deal more perilous.
Ewoks are a species of small creatures that resemble teddy bears that appear in the Star Wars universe. They are hunter-gatherers and inhabit the forest moon of Endor. Ewoks are my favorite Star Wars murder bears. I remember watching the two Ewok movies, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor when I was very young. The forests of Endor always captured my imagination.
