Happy 2009 from Signalnoise

International Year of Astronomy 2009

2009 is the Year of Astronomy, which sounds very promising for us and the universe :)

The International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009) will be a global celebration of astronomy and its contributions to society and culture, highlighted by the 400th anniversary of the first use of an astronomical telescope by Galileo Galilei.

Sidenote: The trees used in the image was a photo I snapped from the patio of my parents’ house earlier today. They have the best woods ever.


  1. Now THAT is very cool.

    Also, I had no idea how dope C&D’s trees looked run through the inversion machine.

  2. So, is Year of Astronomy a client of yours or are they holding a contest or something? You didn’t really explain what it was for per say…

    Happy new year.

    Ryan, with the snow we had recently, my parents should start renting out the backyard to Norwegian black metal bands :) It looks awesome right about now.

    Justin, no they aren’t a client. I’ve always been interested in all things cosmic (nebulas, clusters, etc) so I wanted to do my part in bringing some awareness to the upcoming ‘Year of Astronomy’.

    Nice layout and design here i see a bit of the borealis here.. I’m interested in knowing how you keep your final design so crisp..for example the gasoline morning, this one, the computer arts tut.. well all of your work.. mine tends to have a bit of a fuzz bc of all of the overlaying.

  7. Excellent work! You too a happy new year!

  8. nice … would have preferred it without the tape edges though
    any chances you’ll be selling this in your shop soon?

  9. Awesome. Do you plan on showing it to them?

    Ralph, I’ll be adding some more prints to my store this January and this may very well be one of them :) Thanks for the suggestion.

    Justin, I already did. I had to be granted permission to use their logo so they saw it before posting.
