The visual is part of our self promotion “campaign” published in Lurzer’s Archive (international edition) and aimed at the Russian advertising market. The idea was to create a series of visuals, each paying tribute to a great Russian idea or accomplishment and with the copy in cyrillic reading “WE WANT TO ILLUSTRATE YOUR BEST IDEAS”. We wanted each visual to be created by a different digital artist represented by our digital illustration agency Photoby Digital, making sure each visual is a good representation of their unique style - serving both as a good promotion of the particular artist as well as the agency as a whole.

This second visual, by Finger Industries, is an intergalactic homage to the Russian accomplishment of putting the first man into space as well as their general accomplishments in this field.  It depicts Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin waving gaily out of the window of the rocket Vostok 1 which took him to outer space & cemented his place in history.  It also shows Laika (the first dog in outer space...) as well as the first artificial earth satellite, the Sputnik.  The visual, in which we wanted to underline Finger Industries’ skill in character creation, depicts an intergalactic museum of "Human Achievements” in which alien visitors (aren’t they just amazing??) are clearly enthralled learning about earth and its inhabitants.
