Here is the begining of my entry. The idea is to make a map of the universe but as seen by a primitive race who have been visited by aliens over time. So there are pictures of a rocket, galaxies and images of the aliens, planets moving in retrograde and what might be a space-suit helmet.
The style and colours are a mixture of Mayan and Chinese with some other motifs thrown in. There is still a long way to go with this, Another annulus around this one will have a star chart as drawn by the primitive race...well that's the idea anyway!

Your good. I would have never thought of that. Colors are beautiful.
Damn, wish I had thought of this Awesome idea.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

Thanks Sagenlicht, it was all done in Seriff draw plus which is like a poor man's adobe illustrator (but can do about 90%) of what illustrator does and is much easier to use. These days I use it to draw most of my maps if I'm not using photoshop.
