I did this pair of illustrations of Laika, the first animal to orbit the earth, for Oh Comely Magazine’s Space Issue, out now! Her travels on the Sputnik 2 mission were portrayed for years as heroic, but it was later revealed she died in the first 5 hours of her 5 month voyage.

Thanks again to AD Laura Callaghan!
