Tourist painting, China style. Paintings generated by our outsourcing mission to China (BPL-002) have been pretty much sold out.  Speaking of that, we would be happy to make you a 'fake' one, by having the same artist make another version of the original Chinese-Manufactured-American-Made imported art-sketches.  Given that these potential new items are knock offs, the price per unit will be higher because the inentionality of the original project will be even more manifest than in the originals.  And speaking of that, see more of them and get information on the mission at the mission page. Touristic Art Trinkets (TAT) $200.00

		You won't find these things anywhere else- During development of the BPL Metaliturgical Department, sand mold tests were conducted using the Lunar Overshoe from Conrad Carpenter's A7LB Space suit! You get an aluminum casting of the imprint left from the boot. Each of these is unique and bears the unmistakable characteristics of those footprints you see in the pictures from the moon in the 1960's and '70's. The boot was part of BPL's completely hand made Lunar Space Suit project. The aluminum is from actual defunct BPL equipment and manufacturing detritus, pulled from our immense pile of mistakes and miscalculations, and melted down in our Provisional Foundry.

Intangibles: Drawing

A "raffle" will be held during the BPL-003 mission after operations have begun in Montana. The pre-determined "winner" will get the dubious honor of launching the ICARUS High Altitude Vehicle Element (IHAVE) from the deck of the MUNIN lander, via the Interweb. Any purchase made between January and August, 2010 automatically enters you, whether you want it or not, into the contest. In the interests of avoiding any legal entanglements associated with 'games of chance', we have decided to eliminate the element of chance altogether. So what you get for your money is the good feeling that you are playing a vital role in the mission, and BPL will send you this artistic keepsake 'ticket'.
