Astronaut Fashion: Spacesuits Through the Years

Tuesday 04.23.2013 , Posted by

1 Project Mercury

Imagining what the iconic picture of Buzz Aldrin on the moon might look like if he weren’t wearing a space suit can be stomach churning when you think about all of the elements that the personal space ship protects against. Without the pressurised gas to maintain internal pressure, all of the gases in his body would expand at a rapid rate, causing his blood to boil, and he would have no oxygen to breathe. NASA has a great interactive that shows a friendlier cartoon version where Andy the Astronaut demonstrates what would happen to a human in space without protection, then you can take a virtual tour of the space suits that have made history. Enjoy watching the evolution of the space suit as you scroll through this collection. [Read more...]

The Bizarre “Truppe Fledermaus” from Kahn + Selesnick

It’s hard to get more bizarre or intriguing than these recent works from the New York/British collaborative duo Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick. Their mixed media series of photographs, paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures see a world of greenmen, bats and death dancers prancing about the countryside and the near outskirts of sometimes familiar towns.

Magical Landscapes by a Legend: Eyvind Earle

Monday 04.01.2013 , Posted by

Eyvind Earle 1

The work of Eyvind Earle is truly timeless, looking so current it could have been painted yesterday by a mature artist we’d flock to gallery openings for… but Earle passed away almost 13 years ago. His lifetime of work continues to inspire with its imaginative, dreamlike scenery; confetti-like array of colors across the canvas; and for the many influential film works he helped create. If these landscape paintings look familiar, we’ll tell you why. [Read more...]

Vintage Predictions of Life on Other Planets

Thursday 03.28.2013 , Posted by

3 Frank R. Paul life-on-mars

In 1939, we knew much less about our solar system, so much less that these illustrations by Frank R. Paul may have really made people wonder about what strange life may be living on other planets. His drawings were some of the first images seen by science fiction writers Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and Forrest J Ackerman, making him one of the greatest influences on the early pieces in the genre. Using what little knowledge scientists had about the compositions of each planet, Frank R. Paul drew his predictions of what humans might find should they try to inhabit the other planets. [Read more...]
