Blast Off to Negative Space

I love this series of drawings because they're all about space - both literally in subject, and in design -- through the use of negative space.

These illustrated intergalactic adventures are both dense and airy. The intense and compact scribbled lines are broken up and interplay with the space left blank.

The drawings, depicting an astronaut killing time in space, are more surreal and witty than appear at first glance. Vacuuming the stars like dust, a paint bucket labeled "cosmos"—I can't help but smile at the playfulness. See more illustrations like these (and not like these--he draws plenty of stuff other than astronauts) in P3T3 B3's sketchbook. Even his name is futuristic, how fitting!
