Inspiration: SwissMiss

This is one of my favorite places I go on the internet nearly every day, Tina Roth Eisenberg's swissmiss design blog. Today, one of my space-suit-loving StarDucks characters visited Tina in here office in NYC to say hello and to show her his newly bought swiss-suit:

Update: I forgot to mention, that he's a wrestling suit lover, too. They call him 'The Red 4-Legged Iron Feather'.

Btw, not long ago, something that really helped me out creating the background for the "Goldberg piece" were the colours of that very photo:
