I.F. - 'Space'
Well, Illustration Friday is nothing if not educational. Whilst trying to get some inspiration for the theme of 'space' I came across the toughest creatures known to mankind - Tardigrades aka Water Bears aka Moss Piglets. (Google them - they really are this cute!) They can withstand extremes of temperature, pressure, dehydration and radiation that would kill most other living things and because of their supreme survival skills (Bear Grylls eat your heart out!) they were sent into outer space to see how they fared. Hope they're OK out there!
