The Space Race



(From the top left to bottom right;) Sputnik the first satellite in orbit, Laika the first animal in space, the first human in orbit, an example of how some rockets failed to launch, the first piloted rocket to orbit the moon and the first moon landing.

Pick a theme from the twentieth century and create six illustrations around it.

Choosing the space race during 1957 to 1969, I illustrated some of the key stages because this topic interested me.
The illustrations were made by using marker pens to draw on photograph paper with an appropriate texture printed on it. To give the illustrations an interesting setting I also drew on and cut out mount board created the display and control panel, giving it a flattened but a three- dimensional effect.
