Why is it that when artists depict lady astronauts they are always wearing a full face of make up, I ask yez. Is it to let the viewer know that the character is merely a work of fiction and could never exist in real life? Am I thinking about this too hard? Probably.
I only recently started seeing these paste-ups of a lady astronaut, who I discovered is called Space Girl, over the summer when I was wandering aimlessly in the Chelsea Gallery District looking for art. She’s glamorous, she’s an astronaut, I like her.
The artist of Space Girl is named Mike Raz (@m1keraz) and you can buy limited edition prints of her face for not that much money at This Link.
