“Blowing Planets” is inspired by a psychedelic collage Max liked. In this painting, a hippie girl blows bubbles as planets while in space. Max usually creates stars with flicking white watercolor from a brush, but ran out of white watercolor. Instead, the stars were created with white pastel. In the painting, the giant hippie girl is blowing Jupiter as a bubble. Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, the Earth, Mars, and the Death Star are all bubbles being blown away. The planets were done in colored pencil. The giant hippie girl was done with a combination of graphite for the skin and colored pencils for the colors.
