From the peak of the wave, I can see the silhouette of the Orb against the darkening sky. The blood-red sun is faint and hangs just above the horizon, where dark clouds have begun to gather. On the ship’s geodesic panels, the lights blink on and off in the purple twilight.

Based on my episodic SciFi tale The Technologies of God, this artwork depicts the scene from episode 11. In this scene, the protagonist and his companion are inside a submersible craft, following a floating seaport in the turbulent waters of the Caribbean Sea. A "hawk" awaits them onboard to smuggle them as stowaways in a spaceship called The Orb.
