Quick Description: Carsmos is based out of Austin, Texas, but was visiting Canal Street in New Orleans after Christmas 2014. As soon as Blasterz saw the "Keep Austin Weird" bumper sticker on the car, we knew it was a bit of home in the Big Easy. :)

Long Description:
We spotted the Carsmos art car along Canal Street in downtown New Orleans on 28 Dec 2014.

This car is well known in Texas, appearing frequently in Art Car Parades in Austin and Houston. As a graduate of the University of Texas, I remember when I was in school that all the art cars would appear on 6th Street on weekends. I bet Carsmos has been there as well.

The cars owner and creator Lois has her own website. Apparently Carsmos is only the latest art car that she has created: (visit link)

"Often seen around Austin, Carsmos is the latest of Lois’ Art Cars– a mobile example of her artwork!"

See here for an interview by Lois about Carsmos: (visit link)

Blasters is spent 10 to 15 minutes enjoying all of the aspects of Carsmos, one of the most outstanding art cars we have seen in a long time. The artistry here is manifest and we love all the beautiful decorations that Lois has applied to the car.

Of course, it helps that we love astronomy AND sea creatures, so this car captivated the whole Blaster family.

We would also note that Lois's 1990s-era Toyota Corolla (which is now Carsmos) is a lot cooler than Mama Blaster's 1991 Toyota Corolla that she drove for 20 years.
Vehicle type: Toyota Corolla
