Wonder Boys by MichaelO Wonder Boys by MichaelO
The Space Shuttle is retired now.
It brought a lot of ingenuity and inspiration to this world over the past 35 years and it is a shame to see it go. I wanted to give it a proper send off as a reminder that reaching for the stars is a noble figurative and literal goal.

Awesome art work, if this is done with brush and paint on canvas i think it's gonna sell really well :)
This is one of my favorite art work in deviant art.

The first time I saw this picture a few weeks ago, I actually started to tear up. Can't imagine why either, because I've never been that interested in space exploration. I was in my school library at the time, and I ended up half-panicing and closing out of my browser for whatever reason. ('Guess I didn't want to attract unneeded attention.)

In the days that followed, even a mere thought of this picture would get me all teary. I'm not overly emotional normally, so it gives me all the more reason to think that the visual impact of piece is tremendous.

I really love this, I think it's brilliant.

This is awesome. The only reason I'm not buying it is the American flag. There are kids dreaming *everywhere*. I'd like to be reminded of the dream and not the nation.
