Yes. I had working on a series of space images (paintings and computer
graphic images) about our solar system. Some of the images have billboards
in them. None of the images were to be actually pitched for financing and
development, as the idea of billboards anywhere is a bit of a put-off. Yet,
for illustrative sake, the concept can be fun and even humorous.

I have a couple of friends who produce satellites art. On their electronic
drawing board is a moon performance piece. The idea is very poetic, and the
images (sketched out ones) are stunning. (The project is not intrusive.)
