Martin Tognola / Starting a conversation with extraterrestrials

View Portfolio



Martin Tognola’s illustrations for La Vanguardia, a Spanish newspaper’s Sunday supplement on messaging extraterrestrials.

The article Tognola illustrated describes attempts by Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence (METI) to send messages into space in hopes of getting a response.

One illustration shows an astronaut writing a message in space with a pencil.  The second sends binary code through a cellphone that looks like a space station and the third launches a message in a bottle via a rocket. Tognola gets his inspiration for the series of editorial illustrations from comics and 80s movies.
