Graeme Neil Reid: Walking on the Moon

Graeme Neil Reid: Walking on the MoonHere’s the latest contribution to our marking of the 40th Anniversary of the first Moon Landing: “Walking on the Moon”, a stunning piece of art by top Scottish illustrator and comics artist Graeme Neil Reid, whose credits include the Radio Times and is one of the contributors to Scotch Corner, a new combi-blog for Scottish artists.

Graeme is a freelance illustrator based in Edinburgh, Scotland, mostly known for comic work for various publishers including Image Comics and Caliber Comics. He’s also worked in the advertising and marketing industry for over 15 years. Working with both traditional tools and computer software such as Photoshop, Painter and Illustrator, Graeme is probably best known for his strong ink line and computer colouring – but he’s also happy to get his hands dirty with oil paints when needed!

His illustration will soon join our “Moon Landing 40th Anniversary: A Comics Celebration” – a gallery of illustrations and comic art inspired by space exploration – which includes art by Martin Baines, Nick Abadzis, Colin Howard, Mike Nicoll and others.

Further contributions are very welcome: if you don’t want to join our forum and upload art but would like to join in with the celebrations, simply send your work to

Please ensure images are no larger than 2MB in size and include a brief bio and web link so we can give you deserved credit.

On today, the actual anniversary of the landing, our thanks to everyone who found time to contribute in their busy schedules so far!
