Hi-Res Color
Hi-Res Mono

First: BIG thanks to Philip for doing the flash for me!

DESCRIPTION
There are 2 different concepts:

The original colored version:

Imagine there never was a Cold War. USA and SU settled their differences in favor of pursuing the dream of a manned moon mission together.

Everything went smoothly until the space shuttle was approaching moon and preparing to drop off the lunar module. Suddenly for unknown reasons, the ship's engine exploded and it crashed on moon.
Only Buzz Neilstrong and Gaga Yurin - an astronaut and a cosmonaut who'd already boarded the lunar module - survived.
After - of course unsuccessfully - trying to repair the shuttle or at least transmit a distress signal, they are now slowly but surely running out of oxygen. Already benighted they're joining their forces in a last and desperate attempt of getting back home...

The monochrome version and the glow:

It's the night before the big day, a milestone in history of all mankind:
The launch of the first manned aircraft headed for moon.
Buzz Neilstrong and Gaga Yurin, the 2 lucky bastards who'll get to to be the first men on moon, can't sleep a wink. So they go outside for a walk. Suddenly, tinged with juvenile hilarity, Buzz climbs on Gaga's shoulders and tries to get to the moon right away.

The colored version is either 6 colors (if the earth is reduced to blue, green and white halftones) + glow ink or sim process + glow.

The monochrome version is just white halftones + glow ink.

In both versions, special details (visors, sockets, buckles, buttons) could be printed over with metallic clear ink.

The earth and moon - regular and glow ink - are supposed to go around the whole collar, also on the back.

Reminds a bit too much of the space tourist design, but this is still different, awesomely executed, and with a diggable placement of the moon, that it makes it a fiver. Well done.

@Plu Shu: thanks man! i actually came made a wip blog about this before naolito started working on his awesome "typical tourist photo". and if you think about it, the concepts and styles are quite different ;)

Naolito
Naolito profile pic Alumni
