Farewell, Neil Armstrong by flyingblind Farewell, Neil Armstrong by flyingblind
Today, Neil Armstrong, the man who has become the inspiration of so many astronauts and avid fans of space exploration, passed away. So long, Mr. Armstrong. You have been the reason of many a child's dreams of exploring space; to go where no man has gone before.

"As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own.” - Charles Bolden

This is going up on the wall of my 2 yo son's room. It will inspire him to do great things.

That's as simple as it's great and i think he would have liked it. I can also see it as a cover for his biography...

very beautiful! i put this as a poster on my office door :)
i was wondering, when you made the lines in the background,
were you more thinking of zodiac signs, or of a network like
the Internet?

very beautiful! i put this as a DINA4 poster on my office door :)
i was wondering, when drawing those connecting lines in the
background, where you thinking of the zodiac sign, or more something
like the Internet?

I was thinking more of zodiac signs. at first I put there some constellations but after looking at the whole thing, I found them very distracting. :) I just wanted the focus of viewers to be on Mr. Armstrong, the moon lander, and the Earth. :)
