Astronaut Jesus

I've got a thing for street art and for urban toys. I like the cute ones, though. Nothing bloody or violent for me, please. And I am especially in love with astronauts. Probably because I wish that I had become an astronaut. And anyone who has ever read my blog knows, I am in love with pink. So when I saw Doma's pink Astronaut Jesus, I about flipped. How totally cool.

Doma is a collective of artists from Argentina who started out as street artists. They are incredibly talented, and their site is a delight of energy and whimsy. Astronaut Jesus, according to Doma is "an elite member of astronaut gods that have come to our planet since the beginning of time to shape our civilization..." Groovy.

Pink Astronaut Jesus from My Plastic Heart. I think it is a very fine tribute to Christ to make him an astronaut and to make him pink. I would love to travel with this fine fella.

And just look at this fab poster available from Kid Robot. The big J looks very serene here. I want it! And it matches a color scheme I've been seeing a lot of lately, yellow and red.
