Tomorrow is Towel Day! Celebrated every 25th of May the day pays tribute to the late author Douglas Adams. Fans around the universe carry a towel with them in reference to ‘The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy’. It will be 10 years since Douglas Adam’s untimely death to commemorate this and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the BBC television series I have created, ‘Struggle of a 6ft Tall Ape Descendant’
Painted in acrylic on card we see Arthur Dent (played by Simon Jones)’s reaction to the Heart of Gold’s tea as Douglas Adams watches over him. I started the painting in 2009 that same year Simon Jones signed the piece at Hitchcon 09. It has been incorporated with Douglas Adams’s signature.
The piece was selected to feature in The Jaggeroth: Online Sci-Fi Art Exhibition a permanent exhibition dedicated to Sci-Fi art launched in conjunction with Hitchhiker’s Week.
