There and Back again, Page 96 to 100

Since I am now right around 152 illustrations (halfway done!), I should really post here a little more often since it seems I'm about 50 behind.

I promised some photos of Project Space and one of these days I will put them on here I swear!  I'm having a great time working down there, conversing with the other artists, but my time is nearly done.  I plan to pack up my little area the week after next so I can have some proper summer time with my daughter before school starts.

Now, onto the illustrations:
