Perseverance

This is the first time I've drawn inside the Museum of Flight in about 20 months.  Over last summer I did a couple "Draw Along" programs in the mostly open air Aviation Pavilion. Today I sat on the floor, behind a sign and a pillar, so almost no one noticed me.  

These are the JPL full scale models of Mars rover Perseverance and Mars Helicopter Ingenuity.  Staff from JPL even came to install them a few weeks ago.  The rover is described as the size of a small SUV. 
(JPL = Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California).

This was a complex subject.  I approached it by just drawing one shape after another as they connected to each other.  I suggested in the background the Full Fuselage (Space Shuttle) trainer.  These artifacts are in the Simonyi Space Gallery on the west side of the Museum campus.

  1. Interesting looking rig. It would be fun to sketch there sometime. I don't think I've ever been. I wonder if you were as unnoticeable as you might think sitting on the floor as you were. :)
