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!

My name is Simon I'm an engineer, creator, free thinker and occasionally writer. For far too long I had ideas and nowhere to put them for the world to see, that's why Planet Simon was created. I'm an experimenter, explorer and fascinated by the world around me and the people in it. My exploration goes further than the known universe and expands out to universe's I've created in my mind and put onto the creative canvas. I'm not the person I used to be and over time I have evolved and the blog is evolving with me. Whatever this blog is in the future it's a place where all are welcome and ideas can roam free to find their magical place in the universe.

      1. Very true Simon. An upheaval in the relationship with mainland Europe, a pandemic; together they are nearly equivalent to drawing a thick dark coloured marker line between the 21st centuries second decade (business as usual) and this one (where do we go from here?)
