Lost in Space

© Charlotte Anne Thomson This is a piece I completed using watercolour and brown ink for a ssepia effect. I was influenced by a mixture of 1950s and 1930s cinematic styles, retor pulp fiction novel covers and Science Fiction B-Movie styles. The characters shown are intentionally styleised renditions of Anne Darrow (Fay Wray) and Sebastian Haff (Bruce Campbells replacement Elvis in the film Bubba HoTep), this was a personal piece for a friend to whom it makes perfect sense! Check out www.pardus.at for a partial explanation!
