SPACE ADVENTURE

Project Brief:

 

An art piece using a mix of illustrated and photographic elements to be printed using archival pigment printing techniques.

 

Description:

 

I find images of galaxies and stars to be immensely interesting and so I chose to build upon that photo with illustrated elements depicting a retro-style astronaut floating among detritus and large planetary bodies. It was meant to create a sense of limitless and/or openness which speaks to adventure and pioneering. The ray gun in his hand shows that although the character seems to be at the mercy of the emptiness of space he is ready and in control of his fate among the stars.
