Continuing some new collection ideas…
The inspiration fairy came and smacked me really hard upside the head the other day.
And I was seeing stars!
Stars in outer space, that is!
I said, hmm… I really liked me some outer space as a kid. My whole room was covered with moon landing photos and pictures of Mars and stuff.
Maybe I should do some space stuff.
So we started with an astronaut. Okay, his left foot’s a little strange. I got the right one down well- but I figured I could get back to the left. I like him, though.
I really liked the space shuttle as a kid, too. That and I figured kiddies today wouldn’t recognize the moon lander.
I might do the “Space Lab” style satellite as a separate piece from the shuttle, even though I show it being held by an arm here.
Anyone remember Space Lab? Fell outta the sky 30 years ago? I know, I’m an old geezer, right…
I like the little stumpy rocket- like one of those kiddie rides in front of the supermarket. I tried doing the moon (you can see it to the right of the rocket) but it looks kinda weird.
Might need to do a little finessing to that idea…
The falling star didn’t work too well for me, either. Just looks like it’s on fire or something weird. Hm.
Saturn looks nice- easy to read and recognizable. Oh, and I sorta like the ‘goofy’ falling star to the left of Saturn (but I don’t think I’ll use it).
And of course, the star is good too.
That’s all for now- more next time!
