As witnessed by Josh and his slimy tentacled sculptural efforts. The Outer Space Art Show is well under way. And in the spirit of self promotion and ego is my peice. :wink:

Very retro--looks like toy ads from the fifties. The space/background looks great, esp the area just behind Laika's ship. Excellent!

Good work. Is this traditional media? I like those little winged guys. They are a nice touch.

Indeed. I especially dug Phil's 'family portrait.' Great work, Doug!

great work Doug, here is a deck you wouldn't want to ride.
i've designed skateboard pics and when you get given your copy you just don't want to ride it at first.

nice one

that's spectacular! .... a great bit of inspiration putting on a deck like that!

does it have a clear coat and what not to protect it?
