Camiseteria’s Dog Star

Dog Star by Rodisley Jose da Silva capitalizes on a ringed planet’s similarity to a frisbee, showing a dog-shaped constellation leaping to catch it. I think part of why it works conceptually is that there’s already a lot of dog imagery and reference in outer space, like Pluto and the titular dog star. There’s also something relatable about the sheer intensity and excitement dogs have about their favorite toys- it’s the same way a lot of sci-fi geeks feel about space. And just as we look at this design and see stars shaped like a dog, that dog looks at a planet and sees a toy disc. That’s the fun of space, we don’t know for sure what’s out there so we’re free to project our dreams onto it. The design has an idea that works, and it’s executed beautifully with a realistic splatter of stars and soft detail on the planet that makes it look real and dimensional.
