A year ago today, August 25th, 2012, astronaut Neil Armstrong passed away at age 82. In days following this sad news, I gave my Illustration Concepts course’s students the assignment to create an editorial illustration about this event. I felt compelled to create an illustration myself, a silent, surreal image of the flag on the moon at half-mast, in a quiet display of respect for the astronaut.
