Astronauts come home

The Museum of Flight invited the public to celebrate the 50th Anniversary today.  There were many activities available but I was most interested in seeing all the "Astronauts about Town" gathered together on display.  I'd spent the summer sketching all 25 of them on-location.

Each of them had a poster with information and each poster included my sketch of that astronaut, which I'd allowed the Museum to use  (I'm a volunteer there).   



I meant my friend Tina after she got through the line.  I prevailed upon her to take my photo with my favorite astronaut and holding my poster of all the sketches.   (I'm dressed for the 60's costume contest, tie-dye and vintage buttons). 



I did one final sketch for this project: the astronauts on display under the Blackbird.

  1. I so love your dedication to this "work in series" project. Great sketches and a wonderful way to finish the series with the collective of the suits beside the air craft. Congradulations. Great work Kate!
