neil armstrong
local hero

A sketch of Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, who is descended from my local town (he visited in the early 70's and received freedom of the district or something. Possibly not his greatest honour since returning from the moon). The famous Nasa photo portrait from which this is drawn hangs in the local town-hall and was something that caused great awe in my childhood-self, on weekly visits with my Mam, to pay the rent.
Drawn with a stick dipped in ink, just to keep the scientific / space theme going.
