I like the moon because It's full of cheese!

I was inspired by a book I found about the future in space. It was published in the late 1950's so we had not yet landed on the moon, but it was very optimistic. Too bad that didn't work out. But look at the googles this guy is wearing, man is he ready to grow large vegetables on the moon!
Hmmm I still think space suits look cool.

These are a few of the collages I worked on over the summer and have yet to put up. I guess you could say I was inspired by a simpler era or perhaps the promise of a glorious future. But since I am not growing delicious vegetables on the surface of the moon I am making art about astronauts and space exploration instead. Hopefully I can channel this interest into some current artwork.

But Emu - everyone will be there! The moon is not only beautiful, it makes for good collages, too.
