Illustration Friday "Flying"

For this week's illustration Fridays topic of "flying" I wanted to go old school Nasa VS. The Soviet Union in the space race. I was watching Apollo 13 yesterday (staring Tom Hanks, directed by Ron Howard) and went with something inspired by that movie. I kinda cartooned it up some- and tried to give it a 50's flare. This took about 6 hours and is a Photoshop/Illustrator mix.

This is yet another awesome piece! She should probably point out to him his martini is getting away while he's distracted, though. :)
