Here'a a space truck. I'm not that happy with the presentation. Portrait doens't lend itself to vehicles, but I'm tired and not about to re-jig things.
There's a large universal joint in the center so it can drive over rough terrain and the moon and shit. The space between the rear wheels would be for various modular bits, which would be lifted in via magic (or cranes).

I went life drawing last night. Had a really good time like normal. There's something so cathartic about the whole process.
I just googled "cathartic" to make sure it meant what I thought it did, and the definition was far more accurate and meaningful than I imagined!
The model was great. Good poses and fun shapes in her body.
The texture on the charcoal drawing is too much for me, but the pencils don't hit the range of value that I like. I'll have to try and find something in the middle next time.

This weekend a group of us made a short film for the London Sci-fi Film Festival!
It was an huge learning experience for me, and I'm amazed at what we achieved (actually in 36 hours from brief to upload)
The briefing took place at the BFI here in London. From there, we were given four randomised cue cards as a brief which related to:
Theme: In a world where people have AI assistants, can they be trusted to be an alibi?
Specific dialogue: "Wake up. Please clear the designated sleeping area."
Specific action: An unmarked container is removed from a fridge.
Nothing was prepared. So, everything in the film was conceived and executed in the short space of time allowed. The film's not perfect by any means, but I'm pleased with what we've done as this is the first time I've been quite so involved in a project like this. I'm usually just a part of the front end.
Massive props to the other members of the team: Holly Churches, Ben Witt, Phil Ormrod and Jon Fenton all of whom were pivotal to the project.

In the novel 2312, a 'terrarium' is an artificially created ecosystem living in the cylindrically shaped hollow interior of an asteroid.
Robinson writes about the infinite possibilities for terraria ecosystems, e.g. savannas, water worlds etc.
The Capability Brown (not in the book) is the epitome of an English country garden.
