? Terrella - Tuppence


Terrella February 09 2015

This was going to go in a different direction. I was going to show the galaxy as being this big empty place with Earth far removed from everything, and someone on the planet saying, "We're doing pretty well for being in the middle of nowhere. You think WE live in a hick town? There's not even a gas station out here."

But then I fished up these pictures from NASA and I was like, there's just no way we're all alone out here.

Which is the concept for Terrella. Terrella is a planet I made up that is aware of Earth-- somehow-- even though we're not advanced enough to know about it.

(P.S., no, that's not our galaxy, duh. YOU try taking a selfie from lightyears away.)
