So, my brother opened up a new lab at NASA tentatively titled Avionics Crew Interface Development, where they are focusing on making an information system that an astronaut can carry with him/her everywhere, on his/her person. I was really excited for him, so I drew up a little logo, trying to keep the idea in mind of a self-propelled, self-sufficient person who had all sorts of information input constantly available--thus the multitude of connected eyeballs, the special information-translating goggles, the ear trumpet, the belly-satellite, and the laptop screen that rolls up and folds into a pocket. Also, I wanted to use the art-style of the “machine-age,” a kind of deco flavor, so I used the aviator helmet and goggles, and the scarf...They’re not going to be able to use it officially, as it doesn’t represent the seriousness of their work enough, but it made him happy, so I’m happy :)
Hope you enjoy it!
Sorry these posts have been few and far between--I've been traveling a lot, but hope to get back to a more regular rhythm soon...
