This is part of the 2015 series that I painted for a friend. It’s inspired by the Wechat startup screen and by the members of her family (her, her other half, and their cat fondly known as Fatty). What do you feel when you see this?
It reminds me of the scene in Arthur Christmas where Grandsanta and Arthur are lost, with neither recent maps nor functional GPS, and yet determined to deliver a present to one missed child. The solution? To fly into space and view earth from a vantage point not unlike that shown in the painting. Best map possible under those circumstances.
