I was still using Illustrator when I drew this, and I’m already so used to Photoshop that it feels odd for me to look back at that art style.

One of the scenes in Starshine Wilderness involved the main characters eating a dinner of delicious moon crabs, which the protagonist Mission Commander Mike Mason is credited with discovering some twenty years earlier. We thought it would be fun to do a comic book exploring the moon crabs in a bit more depth, and our elevator pitch became “imagine Deadliest Catch, but in space!”

That space station is from the film, so I have a miniature of it that normally sits in my hallway:
