Artist Statement

"This patch was created to illustrate Yuri Gagarin's mission aboard the the Vostok-3KA spacecraft to orbit the earth. He was the first man to do so, and it was a very crucial mission within the space race. I wanted to depict this within the patch, as well as the mission itself." - Shelby Krueger

I am currently a college student majoring in Graphic Design, and minoring in art at Doane University in Crete, Nebraska. I am very interested in this field of study, am very passionate about design, and I am always looking for avenues to put my work out there.
