Thanks! I always thought that I should do an oil painting of this one.

I really like this image. I am a NASA junkie and I love how you have incorporated the iconic image of the moon landing with traditional sci-fi images. The key here is the reflection of the vision of the astronaut that shows the lander instead of the woman in front of him. This lays out the fantasy element in the characters mind that is being depicted but the actual graphic illustration. Second, the half naked lady looks like Princess Leia in the bronze bikini which is also an iconic image. Then you have the rocket blasting off ... not at all Freudian.

Love it!

Thanks! Yeah, this image definitely lights the fire under Freud's cigar. However, I wasn't consciously thinking of Princess Leia when I drew the half naked lady, I was just drawing a big ass moon.

Now, my subconscious may have been drawing Princess Leia only Freud knows for sure.

Yes I like it too because my subconscious is filled with sublime, subliminal advertising from my subjacent subcortex. However, I could be submitting to my own subjective idealism.
