I've always been fascinated by Space. The first thing I remember wanting to be is an Astronomer. I was asked by local radio host DJ SLT to create a poster for his show, ACROSS THE BOARD, based slightly off of the Space Oddity poster I did. So, I knew I was going to do (my favorite) the colored lines, which I still maintain symbolize sound, with a hint of "exploration."

Colored lines=music.

He's also, like, the biggest David Bowie fan EVER. I'm not even exaggerating. He's an inspiration to young Bowie fans everywhere, such as myself. David Bowie is also very fascinated with space. It's pretty obvious to anybody who's heard any of his songs. The moon was a late addition, because I felt the poster needed a big striking image, and instead of something abstract, I decided on the Moon. It represents the late hour that his show airs during, David Bowie, and a mutual love of Science Fiction. He requested the stars, which I felt was well-needed. The font is ITC Avant Garde, which is becoming synonymous with the more spacey stuff I've been doing. Overall, I think this is another step for me in my design. I think this poster is as much for me as it is for him. Great fun. I'm real proud of it.
