There's always ideas for crazy graphics popping into my head. I try to write down or sketch some of them before I forget.
Though it may seem kind of cynical or defeatist, this particular cosmic image isn't just meant to disparage the relatively futile, but necessary, efforts of mankind.

The biggest problem we face, in the long term, is how to escape this little blue ball and survive beyond it.
