if i were going...

the space foundation holds an international student art contest every year.  each year has a different inspiring theme like Space is Infinite - Explore (2012) or Human Space Travel in 2020 (2011).   the theme for 2013 was if i were going... which i think is great!

the winning pieces, from kids of all ages, are really incredible.   here are some of my favorites, but you can see winners from 2013 and 2012.

Artist: Taha Waqar
i love the curves, colors and textures.

bold, with nice expressive patterns.  i interpret this as the trippiness one would feel going to explore the unknown regions of space.

I can't believe it but this is one of my favourite posts on this blog! It brings back memories of my childhood! I remember trying to make a picture of the Horsehead Nebula with black paper, glue and red glitter!!!
