Compositional sketches and final artwork for my 'Newborn' submission from last year. I think the composition might have been stolen from a Hallmark Christmas card I remember from childhood. The foreground Holy family have been replaced by the Buck Rogers type with his lovely Droid wife and wailing biomechanoid sprog. Background-wise the little town of Bethlehem has morphed into a more opulent Alex Raymond style city whilst a Flash Gordon rocket streaks across the sky instead of the traditional star.
