INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY | 'Space Astronaut' Limited Edition Print by Leslie Thompson 1

For ‘Space Astronaut’ Leslie worked closely with me to research, develop and learn to turn a simple sketch book idea for a ‘colourful female space astronaut’ into a large-scale painting. This inspiration took Leslie to draw his interpretations of classic retro feel movie posters including; King Kong, Valley of Gwangi and Tarzan and creating prints in the process. Leslie developed his research skills, looking into images of early space suits, boots gloves, helmets and images of the planets. – James Pollitt
