Martian Colonist by emmalazauski Martian Colonist by emmalazauski
Scifi bottles, anyone?

Here's a different technique because I like to try new ways of making art - an almost entirely flat-color piece. Some cheatery happened on the protective bubble and in the sky. I did begin the whole thing on paper of course - I'm still really partial to the way that feels.

I imagine this martian colonist as a kind of ground vine dispersed in these bubbles that open when conditions are favorable.

Interesting, so when mars is terrraformed or the conditions to it are good it opens up and the plant life in it spreads out from that spot its in.

Yup! That is the idea. To have a bunch of seedlings ready to take root in the martian soil once the season turns, or the ice caps melt enough for the first martian rain in eons, etc...

Very peaceful and imaginative. It's fun thinking about how nicely this could be reproduced as a screenprint given the flat-color approach you took.

Thanks! When I decided to do this I was actually thinking how much I'd like to try doing limited-color screen printing when I have more space. Especially space I can set up as a dark room, etc.

I have prepress experience separating color plates for a Heidelberg press, and I made wood and linoleum multi-color block prints in college, so I know the basics and it's definitely something I want to experiment with in the future! Limited color is actually a really fun way to work, I think. :)
