Rauschenberg and the Art of Collaboration: The Moon Museum

When Apollo 12 landed on the moon in 1969, it may have been carrying an edition of this artwork.

Forrest Myers, a member of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), invited Rauschenberg, (one of the founding members of E.A.T.) and five other artists to make drawings, which were etched by scientists at Bell Laboratories onto tiny wafer-thin iridium-plated ceramic chips. When NASA didn’t respond to Myers’s request, Bell Labs scientist Fred Waldhauer asked an engineer to help. According to Waldhauer, one copy of the chip was covertly attached to the leg of the lunar lander.

In addition to Rauschenberg’s straight line, there is a Mickey Mouse–like figure by Claes Oldenburg, stylized initials by Andy Warhol (“He was being the terrible bad boy,” said Forrest Myers in an interview), a black square by David Novros, a computer-generated drawing by Myers, and a circuit-like diagram by John Chamberlain.

Viktor and Yuuri from the Rage of Bahamut collab. Granted, I’m not into the game but WHO CAN SAY NO TO FANTASY AU.

-Sort of- referencing one scene from Suikoden III opening (jump to 1:35 - 1:44. Or 1:42 - 1:44), so I drew Viktor to use staff instead of the wand from the collab preview. Not sure which one is better, so I upload both versions 8′D

And now I’m out. Should be sleeping since I drew this when I was (and still am) sick. Good night. *rolls to blanket*

~HAPPY NATIONAL BEST FRIEND'S DAY~

But I think I owe it to those I’ve known the longest and who’ve helped me the most!~✨🌟✨

He’s/She’s been the greatest joy in my life!

So supportive, loving, caring, honestly I can’t sing enough praises~

Again, I want all of my friends to know,

even those who I haven’t spoken to in a while, those who just came by to briefly brighten my day who I reached out and spoke to later, and I suppose sadly even those who may not wish to speak with me anymore,

I love you all so dearly. Most of the ones I listed are simply the ones who’ve had the biggest effect on my life, I wouldn’t be half the person I am today without a single one of these guys!

I may falter a lot, but no matter what happens to me, I wish you all the very best of luck in your future endeavors, whatever they may be, and just want you to know I’ll be here cheering you on all the way!!!

Keep being awesome everyone, I love you all so much!

Again,

Happy Best Friend’s Day!
