Opie's style

mehrdad2011.jpg

My portrait in the style of Julian Opie. In Opie's style, the human face is usually characterised by black outlines with flat areas of colour, and minimalised detail, to the extent that an eye can become just the black circle of the pupil.

The Pale Blue Dot

The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of Earth taken in 1990 by the Voyager 1 spacecraft from a distance of about 6 billion kilometers from Earth. In the photograph, Earth is shown as a tiny dot against the vastness of space. The Voyager 1 spacecraft, which had completed its primary mission and was leaving the Solar System, was commanded by NASA to turn its camera around and to take a photograph of Earth across a great expanse of space, at the request of Carl Sagan. He later used the image as the main title of his 1994 book, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.
