comments from Tyler:

I love space, and I think kids do too. With the shuttle-program on pause, I thought it would be a nice nod to Nasa and to our future astronauts to do some space-themed illustrations.

i like this lots. the quote in a darker color really helps make it stand out without it being a major design element. i think you solved the helmet issue awesomely. the design definitely feels more unified and well balanced. i hope that you are happy with it! im still working out mine, so suggestions from you would be great too. good luck with this one!

I'm having a hard time deciding how to go with this one (and the other one like it), so suggestions and comments would be welcome. Thanks.

Love your illustrations...the details are perfect!! I think between the 2 I definitely like the layout and scale used in this one better, and I think the concept and design mesh better as well. Great work!

nice scientific references (sagan and kepler) and fun design! The colors are lovely and definitely grooving on the single image version more.

i think the single astronaut has better focus than the one with 3. this one you can see the details and i think thats important. the other one seemed a bit more crowded and didn't allow for the design to breathe. the usage of color looks great. have you tried using the same orange for the type in the lower left corner? just a thought. it may help to contain the astronaut and give a bit more balance to the helmet in the top right corner. the helmet also looks like its a floating head and am not sure how you may want to resolve it. the design also looks a bit top heavy because of the helmet and the "04". have you tried moving the "04" into the bottom right corner? have you tried attaching the helmet to the body? these are just some thoughts. you did a good job tyler! i really like the concept.
