Cosmic Reaper

An image inspired by recent research from Belfast Professor Mike Baillie suggesting a link between the outbreak of the Black Death in the fourteenth century and the entry of comets into the earth's atmosphere.

Below is an earlier version with a different colour scheme (which seemed just too colourful to me), along with my initial idea sketches. All of the versions were based around this idea of the comet and its tail doubling as the scythe of the grim reaper.
