While working on a commission for a custom Star Wars Insignia for Shroud Squadron, I came upon a creative block so to try and clear my mind, I decided to do this simple insignia that I saw on a Space: 1999 Fanzine published in 1988 called "The Earth Command Technical Guide. An Update on Space Exploration Since the Breakaway of the Moon." written and illustrated by Jeff Ruble.
The insignia as well as all of the photos and illustrations in the fanzine were all in black & white as was common at the time of publication, so the colors I chose were based on the Space: 1999 Astronaut logo that was seen in the series.
Here is a little bit more about the Fanzine:62 page A4 fanzine written & illustrated by Jeff Ruble, subtitled "An Update on Space Exploration Since Breakaway of The Moon". Card covers and well-printed pages. An imaginative account of what happened to Earth-based space exploration after the Moon had left, in the style of Starlog's "Moonbase Alpha Technical Notebook". The ingenious and well-drawn designs include updated commlocks, stun guns, uniforms and Eagles, plus a Mars Station Delta and the Dove shuttle. Thespace mission accounts and timeline are also clever extrapolation from the series.
