Space Buddies

Continuing my Buddies series, I've just finished Buddies in Space!  I've always loved space - studying the planets and stars when I was (much) younger.  And yes, was even alive and somewhat remember when the Apollo space program went to the moon!

So, as I've started working on this series of clipart, I thought it would be fun to do a set of space images.  I already have a planet / solar system set of clipart I put together a couple of months ago so now I have a set with kids to go with it (and am already working on another space-related clipart set of other space images, like other planets, a satellite, a space station, and other rockets).

For this Space and Astronaut Buddies Clipart set, I've put together 4 buddies in space suits, 7 buddies in the space shuttle, and 10 rocket images with either 0, 1, 2 or 3 buddies at different angles so you can use the rocket either pointing up, pointing to the side or pointing at an angle.  Also included is a space background with stars.  All of these clipart images come in both color and black & white.

As I was making these, I wasn't sure how best to do the buddy faces as they are all either wearing a space helmet or are in a rocket behind glass.  So in Illustrator I grouped all of the head objects together and then changed the transparency and brightness levels so that the final images look like they are actually behind glass.  The "glass" that makes up either the space helmet or rocket window also has some reflective objects to help make it look a little more realistic.

Here's a link to the product on my Teachers Pay Teachers site:

  1. Nice clipart for your Space Buddies Series. Are these available as a free download for MS Office or something. Do share details about these please.
