  11. Sands of Mars II - Sunset on the cold store

    Another dream. Years ago, after the main engine failed on the return craft we resigned ourselves to making a go of it here on Mars. It would be at least two years until rescue came. By the time they arrived, four years later, most of us had decided to stay. I come up here to this small hill...

  16. Blogs
    First attempt I've always liked the early 20th century artist, Piet Mondrian's Neo Plasticist style (example below) and would like to include this style of design in my box work. As you can see his compositions use a white (and sometimes gray) background; red, yellow and blue and a strong...
