Illustration Friday: Moon

Destination Moon

I bought a few songs by Dinah Washington, one of them being Destination Moon. I love that song! It went along nicely with Illustration Friday's theme this week, moon. The celestial sky I created for my last image, My Roots, was reused for this one. This image is paper and digital collage.

Lyrics for Destination Moon

Come and take a trip in my rocket ship
We'll have a lovely afternoon
Kiss the world goodbye and away we fly
Destination moon

Travel fast as light 'til we're lost from sight
The earth is like a toy balloon
What a thrill you get ridin' on a jet
Destination moon

We'll go up up up up
Straight to the moon we two
High in the starry blue
I'll be out of this world with you

So away we steal in a spacemobile
A supersonic honeymoon
Leave your cares below, pull the switch, let's go!
Destination moon

There once was a time when the colorful thing to do
Was to call for a date on a bicycle built for two
But cars and trains and even planes
All have had their day
Now the time is due to call for you
In the modern atomic way

We'll go up up up up
Straight to the moon we two
High in the starry blue
I'll be out of this world with you

So away we steal in a spacemobile
A supersonic honeymoon
Leave your cares below, pull the switch, let's go!
Destination moon

Nice details, like the hearts in the rocket's exhaust, and the silhouettes in the porthole.

'scuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. I can't decide what I like most about this... the moon, space, rocket, hell the entire thing just works. Great colour and detail.

I'm with lockjaw! My jaw is still on the floor! BEAUTIFUL. This works on so many levels. The colors make me want to crawl inside. Congrats on a masterful piece :)
