Doh! I forgot about that one! I was disappointed that it didn't come through Fort Worth again this time. I had to work when it came through last December.

Nice sketches. Were they done 'live' or from photos?

Apropos of nothing really, here are some interesting photos of the space shuttle in space...

This is what I do at work when I'm on the night shift. The kids go to bed, I complete the day's paperwork and clean the unit top to bottom, then up goes the mural! Sometimes I'll go straight from my imagination, but most of the time I find a reference picture (or several) and go from there. The shuttle launch, for instance, is a composite between these two pictures which can be found by googling "shuttle launch":

And this is the picture used for the shuttle landing:
