TV screen or computer backgrounds are a staple design of SPACE: The Comic, providing a vibrant luminescence behind the characters, ships and sets. But it’s not always possible or easy to use those backgrounds, especially when I need to create a bigger environment to accommodate multiple ships. So, that’s when I break out materials like bath towels, blankets, cotton balls and clippings from the hedge outside my front door. It may not be entirely convincing, but I think it creates a feel reminiscent of (if not quite as detailed as) old-time children’s TV created with miniatures, like Davey and Goliath.

– This is not an official LEGO comic. This is a tribute. Nor is it related to Best-Lock.
