Back the late 90's, Geoff Howell Studio was asked to created a series of painted planets for a Bergdorf Goodman ad. Even though they they look 'photoshopped' in, they were individually hung by fishing wire from an overpass on site. The plantary spheres were made from styrofoam, coated, sanded, and airbrushed! No heavenly bodies (or their inhabitants) were harmed during this galactic production.
