Day 1 of the 365 day Story Challenge - The Letter A - Alan the Astronaut
Below is the full story. Would love to hear your thoughts and let me know if this is something you would like to do a one page illustration for.
Alan the Astronaut
Alan the astronaut is stuck on Anori,
A planet in the asteroid belt
Of Alpha Centauri.
He’s adrift out in space,
Far away from this place,
Except for his attractive Fedora
And his pet alligator, Anora.
Back home on the moon,
About 11:30 or noon,
Sits the amazing Astral ship
Awaiting the time for Alan’s return trip.
Awhile before he left his galaxy behind,
He set the date and time for the ship to find,
His Anori house, on this Anori hill
Where he’s lived for awhile
And now for the rest of time will.
The problem, you see, as it says in his display,
Is that the return trip that was made,
Was not for just one-year and a day,
But accidentally made for a hundred year stay.
