Houston, we have a problem

Hi. Brought my little friend back and, well, its really rather fitting to publish him now because February 20th is the 50th anniversary of the Friendship 7 orbit. I didn't know that when I started on him. I just knew I wanted to put him in an astronaut helmet. To infinity and beyond.....

9x12 Charcoal and pencil on Canson Bristol

Sung to the tune of Major Tom by Peter Schilling - or in this case by Shiny Toy Guns because stoopid Itunes doesn't carry the english version of the song. Ich will nicht die deutsch version. I know, I know, you're surprised I've not chosen David Bowie's Space Oddity, but Major Tom is just so fitting.


  1. Fabulous, love the humour in this!

  2. Hi Karen,this is fantastic and so is the music!! Your post is always fun to read and I only wish we lived near each other, we would always have a good laugh!

  3. Love it Karen! My honey is a total space buff and dog lover.
    And I am a sucker for Bowie and awesome art. You had us both at "Houston..."

    1. Thank you Karen. Glad I could make you both smile.

  4. LOL you always surprise me and make me laugh. Love the space dog.
