Deep Map Pilots 5: Ascenciondigital2012
ASCENCION is four billion miles away from home, and that’s the way she likes it.  She’s seen the stained egg of Haumea, and the misty red lump of Makemake, and dozens of other things that no-one had ever laid eyes on before.  Ascencion dives the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Neptune and Pluto.  It’s the graveyard at the end of the solar system.  Failed planets, dead comets, lost moons and all the strange dark rubble left over from the formation of the worlds we know.  She’s out among the spectres, flying through ultimate history to places where, quite literally, there have never been eyes before.  The Kuiper Belt is vast.  She wants to see it all.  She wants it all to herself, in a way that no-one else has ever been able to understand.  She never wants to go home again.

DEEP MAP PILOTS: A Series Of Five Pictures From Words MARENKA – REHANI – CAMEO – JINJING – ASCENCION
[Deep Map Pilots is a five-part science fiction vignette series in collaboration with Warren Ellis.  Ellis writes; Gauger illustrates.]



Before I started this one I had a nagging suspicion that Warren had written it with me in mind (“last of the Kuiper Bedouins” is a common subtitle on my social media profiles).  He confirmed, by using the system of grunts and grimaces we’ve worked out over the years, so I went ahead and made this a self-portrait.
