This image is really nice. I have a group on Flickr that is dedicated to the women of S.H.A.D.O.'s moonbase. Would you possibly be interested in sharing this with my group?

Thanks for responding.

Are you already a member on Flickr? If you are, then I can request the image if it's in your photostream. If not, then we can figure something else out.

Why don't you just email me and I'll send it to you. I was a member of Flicker at one time and then they banned me for nudity or something, I can't remember all the details. I don't really want to sign up again.

My email is - JeffLaffertyIllustration@gmail.com

Nick Drake's sister, doncha no. This is great - it would be even better if you painted the rest of her. UFO was a bizarre series in which the women had purple hair on the moon and wore fetish spandex, and yet everything else looked really dismal in an early-70s way.

I know what you mean I loved the costume, But I figured for card size it would be better to go with just a head shot.
Thanks Eat :)

When I first saw this I looked for the zoom, but when I read the description and saw the size of the canvas I was much impressed. Kudos for such detail on such a small card!
