Planetary Sketchbook

I'm no artist, (and I'm sure no astrophotographer) but I really like to sketch Mars and Jupiter! Sketches will be posted here as soon as they are done, and as many at one time as server space permits. The sketches are done first on paper in the field, then are rendered in Paint Shop Pro or Micrografx Publisher on the PC in JPEG or GIF format.

Now, on with the show!
