Artist Statement

"I wanted to create a patch design for a past, present, and future mission. For a present mission, I chose Juno, as it doesn't get more present than having only just reached its destination. I used photos of Pluto, taken by Voyager 1, to get an accurate colour scheme for the planet in my design, and mirrored the same colours in my illustration of Juno itself. Juno is currently orbiting Jupiter, and will be the first spacecraft to take detailed photos of the planet, and to reveal what lies beneath the clouds. It's a monumental mission, seeing for the first time, just what makes up the inner structure of our system's largest planet." - Ben Farrow

I'm a British digital artist who draws animals in suits, and sometimes other things, too. I'm an anthropomorphic artist, a graphic designer, sometimes a photographer, a proud furry, and a self-proclaimed geek. I currently live in Devon where I like to photograph old buildings, draw raccoons and be socially awkward.
