About the artwork:
Astronauts have always been a symbol of excitement and adventure; of the best of the best going into the great unknown. But coupled with that, Astronauts tend to have such daunting jobs, and bouts of anxiety and fear. Astronauts are trained to be ready for anything but can face things that no other person has ever conquered before. Its that true balance of greatness and vulnerability that draws me to them.
