Artist’s conception of Orion module in Lunar Orbit

A spacecraft built for humans left the domain of low-Earth orbit Friday for the first time in 42 years when NASA’s first Orion soared 3,604 miles above Earth and returned safely hours later, having accomplished a flawless flight test as part of NASA’s journey to Mars. — NASA

Yesterday’s test of the unmanned Orion capsule was intense, at times excruciating (when the livestream signal dropped), and ultimately exhilarating. Below are a few of my live screencaps:

Look at that angle of descent, baby.

It has been said many times that Orion is an initial step toward the transportation of humans to Mars and the asteroids. Of course it is. But let’s not lose sight of the first real trip Orion’s going to make: back to The Moon, my friends.

Maxim Peter Griffin: Illustration and Psychedelia from Old Weird Albion

ZARDOZbyMaximPeterGriffin_Nov_2014

Zardoz, 2014

Maximus Mhrif (as his friends and familiars know him) is a veritable mage of the page, a wanderer through crags and moors and ruins armed with pen and pencils and a third eye, applying colors with a magisterial splash to seal the spell and dazzle his legion of followers, a growing phalanx that I count myself to lucky to fall-in with. I would march in Maxim Peter Griffin’s army even if he weren’t the exclusive designer of my avatars on twitter for two years running, but more on that in a bit. I want to share the subtle power of Griffin’s drawings. They fall somewhere between the unflinching incision of the woodcut and the inspired eerie craft of the automatic scrawl, as if the wind and the mountains and the witches of old unerringly guide his hand. Over the top verbiage, you say? Perhaps. In any event, the drawings speak for themselves.

Amazing work, isn’t it? And we’re not just talking about the avatars, cool though they be—Maxim Peter Griffin’s strokes of pen and brush strike an elemental response rarely seen or felt. The good news is he works every day, producing wonders that you can see and share. Follow him on twitter and his site. Tell him Satan Drax The Wind sent you, and he will respond with wonder.
