A freshly minted piece for an up and coming kickstarter ‘The Umerican Survival Guide‘. The moon peeping in top right is a little homage to local hero, artist Joseph Wright of Derby, whose paintings chronicling The Enlightenment often included the moon, eerily looking on from afar –  an esoteric reminder of how little was still known about the world, and the darkness from scientists were in the business of extracting themselves from (with their own particular brand of magic).
