Galactic Empire

The spaceship and sun symbol of the Galactic Empire
Isaac Asimov is one of my favourite authors. He has an amazing array of stories spread over something like twenty or thirty thousand years of human history. A large chunk of that time is taken up by the rule of the Galactic Empire, which spread throughout the stars, and then degenerated until it could only collapse and be replaced by the Foundation. The emblem is described by Asimov as a cigar shaped spaceship in front of a stylised sun, so it leaves a little room for imagination in there still. I wanted to go for a fifties style spaceship as thats when most of his stories were written and this is the end result.

If you would like to own something with this artwork on it, head over to Redbubble or Society6 and choose from a range of T-shirts, iPhone cases, stickers, prints and other assorted goodies. See all the details on the Doodle Dojo Store.
