The Planet Neptune, number 8 in a set of 9 prints featuring the planets of our Solar System. Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the Sun in the Solar System. The planet is named after the Roman god of the sea, Neptune. Discovered on September 23, 1846, Neptune was the first planet found by mathematical prediction rather than by empirical observation. Because of its great distance from the Sun, Neptune's outer atmosphere is one of the coldest places in the Solar System, with temperatures at its cloud tops approaching −218 °C (55 K).
Art and design has interested me since an early age, so much so that art class was the one lesson at school i genuinely looked forward to every week. After school and university I had the fortune to be able continue my passion, working as a senior designer at Conde Nast Publications in London. After an exhilarating 12 years I bid farewell to my job and England, and moved a couple of thousand miles south to Spain. I now dedicate myself full time to my artistic pursuits in the tranquil and idyllic surroundings of a Mediterranean coastal village. All artwork is copyright of Michael Tompsett.
