When I look back on 2021 I realise that not only did it seem like a year where motivation was low and I struggled to create and come up with idea but also that I’ve done different things and I’ve shown some of them off. Because of this and becasue some of these posts can be fleeting and not seen I wanted to have this look back post.
I think my muse and my desire suffered more than anything over the last year or so and that is something I want to address in 2022 but… I have told a short story or two:
Blog Battle – The Brian Incident
Blog Battle – The Wallagong Beast
Blog Battle – The Conker Singularity – Part 1
Blog Battle – The Conker Singularity – Part 2
What I’m a bit surprised at looking at these is how few Blog Battles I took part in and these are the only proper fiction made up stories that I wrote. There needs to be more this year!
I’ve been creating one or two cartoons on here, the most prominent is 100 Ways to Die in Space. I’ve separated these from fiction as firstly they’re not based on fiction but mainly becasue I created these to show off some of my digital art content skill as well and it’s more of a cartoon.
What I realise looking at these and I didn’t appreciate is how few I created this year. Maybe I need to finish this off with a full set of 100 demises…
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 17 Black Hole
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 16 Electric Shock
But then I’ve also created the Comic Cosmos, little strips on the cosmos and having a little fun with it. I would like to make a good few of these so I have a little collection by the end of 2022.
Comic Cosmos – Juno Visits Ganymede
Comic Cosmos – The Strawberry Supermoon
Comic Cosmos – Water Vapour on Europa
This all new creative endeavour is something I’ve wanted to try for ages… really ages. There are a good number of space artists out there and some of them are truly stunning. Inspired by some of these greats and by the wealth of utterly inspiring pictures out there I had a go at a few pieces created digitally.
For 2022 I would really love to make more pieces like this and eve try my hand with some actual paint.
Space Art – The Clouds of Jupiter
Space Art – Saturn and the Distant Sun
Space Art – The Horsehead Nebula
Finally, I’ve been able to advance my photography. A decent camera set up has meant I can get closer and see further…
More of this is to come.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little look back and I hope you stick with me over the year as once more this blog and my content evolves and changes into something else…
It should be fun!

From the Earth, to the Sun and out towards the great interstellar unknown every object has it’s story. All these things making up the universe, our solar system and life on Earth is as much a part of this great infinite clockwork. In fact the word Cosmos means the universe as a complex, ordered entity, …
