Sketching of Virgin’s Galactic Spacecraft


Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spacecraft has finally flown, to some fanfare and a lot of controversy the Virgin Galactic took its first commercial flight some weeks back.

Aesthetically it’s quite a pretty thing, something that looks quite swan like and graceful. Finding a picture that inspired me – I created this sketch.


There a few more pictures I took along the way that show the progress…

Along with that there’s a couple of small time lapse videos that you can find posted on my Instagram, these are pretty cool I think and if you like now you can find me you can follow more of my artistic exploits.

Let me know what you think… I would love to hear from anyone!
