T he message is simple here, I think. The blobby bit at the top of the splash is supposed to be a certain planet. This image appeared on the cover of the December 1999 issue of the British SF magazine Noesis. I found out many years after making this picture that something very similar had been used on the cover of the excellent album Time by the Electric Light Orchestra. Pure coincidence, but one I quite like!
