Jim Lovell, NASA command module pilot and mission commander, was the absolute package. Made famous by more than one movie and book, they guy who almost, but didn't, actually say "Houston, we have a problem" was an experienced astronaut before he led the mission that accidentally got humans as far from Earth as we've ever managed.
Coming up during the anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission, it just made sense that Lovell be the second piece in our ongoing Astronaut of the Month series. Inspired by mid-century magazine illustrations, Dane designed these two color illustrations hoping to remind us of the excitement and fascination that overflowed when Astronauts were the world's newest heroes.
These limited edition prints are printed on Epson 100% cotton rag cold press watercolor paper with archival Epson Ultrachrome HD inks, so they should stay bright and beautiful for a long time.

Sized at 4x4 inches, you can frame these individually in standard 4x4 frames, mat them up to a larger square frame, or even group several together for added style.
