Space Suit of the Week

I was pointed to the great fickr site of Brent Schoepf, who has recently posted several space-suit-centric designs. Some are up as wallpapers and others are up on threadless where they hope to become t-shirts that you can wear on your body. And just in case the youngin’ wasn’t busy enough, he made this music.  I prefer the colorful and curious collages to his black and white stuff, but even those are great.  He says that he “pretends to make art” in a self-deprecating understatement. But he says a lot of things, like his favorite color being “mint-seafoam-aqua-green-teal” or “magic wizard purple.” You can watch a video of him talking here.

P.S. I’m not exactly sure why “the end” appears on on a few of his space suit designs, but I can’t help but think of the end of the shuttle program. This week, the final launch date of the entire NASA shuttle era was announced: the 8th of July.

    This little animation had me thinking about the fox! Check it out, and see if it has the same effect on you. Well, besides the fact of the spaceman, it has that certain aesthetic I get from the site. Farewell!

    Thanks a whole bunch for the feature! I’ve been working on an exploration themed show (based on the final launch date) that I hope to have finished for the fall. Expect more!
