Zero Gravity

Another from the reject pile, and another set in space. Originally designed around 1993 as Sidney the Kidney by George Nicholas for a kid's charity (this is true, I'm not making it up!) it flopped, so I rejigged it as Gary Grape, recoloured him green rather than red, and changed all the kidney puns to grape puns (surprisingly, there were a lot of them!) This was drawn by me, coloured by me, and was the first thing I'd used a computer on, actually an Apple Mac, and Photoshop and Quark Xpress. How professional!
