Emmy-award winning artist Raoul Marks, is well known for his work helping to craft some of the  most iconic title sequences of his generation, including opening credits for True Detective,  WestworldThe CrownHalt and Catch FireAmerican Gods, and Man in the High Castle. In  2015 he created a title sequence for design festival Semi-Permanent – as part of that process, he  open sourced some of the 3d files used in its creation. In particular a detailed model of an  Astronaut. Those files have been downloaded over 40k times, seeding the proliferation of  astronaut artworks that have subsequently flooded Instagram and crypto platforms. And as such  the phrase “OG Astro” was coined. Marks’s work revolves heavily around the anonymity of this  avatar and it’s explorations of new crypto-topographical horizons.
