I love astronomy. I think about the stars a lot, and I love drawing them even more. The first page of this comic is made up of billions of tiny dots (my carpal tunnel assures you, it is thanks to the magic of digital brushes). So many that the native file size was 2 gigabytes for that page alone! Suffice to say, I was pretty torn when I heard about the controversy in Hawaii over the construction of the new Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea. On one hand, learning new things about space is really cool, but then again, I can say that because it's not my backyard they're building on.
