Space Suit of the Week, etc.

Beau Daniels makes complex drawings, highlighting concealed structures and assemblies. While I’m not always crazy about the embellishments and styling of the drawings, I’m amazed by the technical execution. The above illustration was created for Scientific American, and while it is clearly inspired by the Apollo Space Suit, I’m less sure of how accurate a representation it is. Something looks funny about that glove… maybe I’m just distracted by the astronauts hand looking like a rooster… or his eyeball.

Two other favorite Daniels illustrations:
