Illustration Friday - "Polar"

Earth Day this week got me thinking about the polar ice caps, and I thought of the "Blue Marble" picture taken by the astronauts of Apollo 17. The original NASA caption read, in part, "View of the Earth as seen by the Apollo 17 crew traveling toward the moon. This translunar coast photograph extends from the Mediterranean Sea area to the Antarctica south polar ice cap. This is the first time the Apollo trajectory made it possible to photograph the south polar ice cap."

ACEO size, Polychromos and Prismas on black Stonehenge.
