"Somebody has to be crazy enough to go first!"

Lunatics ( is the story of eight people establishing the first permanent human settlement on the Moon. Politics are inevitable, physics is implacable, and the colonists are indomitable fanatics.

Lunatics is a concept we first had about 10 years ago at a space conference when we asked ourselves this question: if the Moon were colonized not by corporations or by governments but by a grassroots organization of the same people who today are space fanatics what will that look like?  

Although they've mellowed a little bit in the development of the story, the characters started out as impressions of the space-crazy people we knew from the space community, transplanted into a situation where they would have to "walk the walk" as well as "talk the talk".

And as we developed this concept, we kept asking ourselves the question "What would really happen?" -- challenging ourselves to look beyond science fiction cliches and consider the realities of physics, planetary science, engineering, psychology, and politics that we knew from our experience. Having been professional scientists and having gone through more "do-it-yourself" experiences than I care to mention, we felt uniquely qualified to create this kind of story.

It's a story about confident, resourceful people facing serious problems with a sense of humor; it's about the fundamental dangers both of nature and of human nature; and it's about a truly realistic view of space colonization and settlement.

We are now collaborating with Daniel Fu "Daystorm"(, who's already done the concept art for the eight main characters. We are currently running a Kickstarter campaign (…), mainly to pay him a commission for doing the actual character design sheets. Come support it if you can -- we have some cool rewards, ranging from posters to original concept and/or modelsheet sketches by Daniel.

For the "Concept Art Poster" (and also for our Characters Page (, I've been digitally inking and coloring portraits drawn from Daniel's concept art pages. I'm posting these here as my latest pieces (though of course, they're really collaborations).
