Collection: John Cohorst
I always get the question, “why astronauts?” – my response is always, “there’s a lot of reasons, but to start, they’re funny…”! I use humor to draw the viewer in, and I find the astronaut image speaks to people on different levels; for some, it’s scientific or about exploration, others see a nerdy outsider or a space cadet. People find aspects of themselves in these quirky illustrations and are surprised when they see themselves reflected in the gold luster face shield! I hope that my Astroware pieces uplift the user, bring a smile to their face, and offer a moment of intimate self-reflection… literally!
