Collector’s Space Shuttle Screenprints!

I’ll be debuting 3 new screenprints at Comic Con next week commemorating the amazing Space Shuttle program which spanned 30 years! These will be available indivudually for $75 or as a set for $200. Each one is 10”x28”.

Come visit me and my friends Jasmin Lai and Tiffany Ford at Booth #5007!

These are incredible designs. I’d love to see them as a wall banner (maybe that’s what a screen print is?) hanging from my bookshelves, or even the space center.

Any chance of these coming to NYCC? 


An Expedition 26 crew member used a fish-eye lens attached to an electronic still camera to capture this image of the docked space shuttle Discovery (STS-133) and its remote manipulator system/orbiter boom sensor system (RMS/OBSS), the newly-installed Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) and the Canadian-built Dextre, also known as the Special Purpose Dextrous Manipulator (SPDM). The blackness of space and Earth’s horizon provide the backdrop for the scene.

Photographed from a shuttle training aircraft, space shuttle Endeavour and its six-member STS-134 crew head toward Earth orbit and rendezvous with the International Space Station. Liftoff was at 8:56 a.m. (EDT) on May 16, 2011, from Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Onboard are NASA astronauts Mark Kelly, commander; Greg H. Johnson, pilot; Michael Fincke, Andrew Feustel, Greg Chamitoff and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori, all mission specialists. STS-134 will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS), Express Logistics Carrier-3, a high-pressure gas tank and additional spare parts for the Dextre robotic helper to the International Space Station. STS-134 is the final spaceflight for Endeavour.

Atlantis shuttle experience simulates outer space for NASA

Simulating outer space, the Atlantis shuttle experience is boldly going where no other has gone before,suspending an orbiter 30 feet in the air to display it in full flight mode. dedicated to NASA’s space shuttle program, the $100 million exhibit uses tunable lighting techniques to celebrate a technological marvel – as it would have appeared in action. installed in the 90,000 square feet museum at The Kennedy Space Center, american architects Pgav Destinations in collaboration with design firm Fisher Marantz stone used over 250 LED fixtures from Lumenpulse to create the dynamic scheme. the fixtures can be varied in color temperature and hue to recreate the unusual lighting conditions in space, and make it seem as if sunlight is reflecting off the orbiter.
