A cartoon of a butterfly hatching from the moon
The moon as an egg or a chrysalis
I drew a version of this cartoon in pen and ink back in the late 1980s or early 1990s. This digital version was done in the late 1990s.
I was reminded of this cartoon while watching a recent episode of the science fiction series Dr Who, called Kill the Moon, in which the moon was a giant egg that hatched into a creature that looked a bit like a cosmic dragon.
There’s obviously nothing new under the sun (or moon).
