Regularly illustrating Guardian opinion pieces means I work on a broad range of topics, from social issues to political tensions to current affairs. One of my favorite parts of being an illustrator is feeling informed and challenged by emerging think pieces and articles written by brilliant minds. It means I keep learning and growing as a human being and as an artist. This piece was about our potential as a race to inhabit the moon, and I must confess, articles like this are a welcome rest from illustrating anything involving Brexit! I sometimes miss the space for more whimsical, narrative image making in an editorial context, and this brief really offered some breathing space from the hard-hitting political issues and enabled me to have a bit of fun.
