Hadfield says he's already received a few dozen ideas for his space poster project. The suggestions range from album covers by Canadian artists Rush and Bachman-Turner Overdrive to the greatest moments in hockey history, according to The Canadian Press.
"Someone suggested the 1972 hockey series between Canada and Russia, so I started looking at the hockey series posters where they show a lot of well-known faces," he said.
"That would be fun to do, (but) I don't know if I could talk the rest of the crew into that."
Hadfield might get support for a hockey poster from Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko and NASA astronaut Tom Marshburn.
They will be with him when he travels to the space station aboard a Russian Soyuz in late 2012.
Hadfield says comic books might also provide inspiration for a poster of his crew, which will include three other astronauts.
"Because there are often teams in comic books, the Justice League of America, the Avengers or something where you get a lot of faces," he said, adding that the final choice will be made by NASA and the Canadian Space Agency.
"The idea of course, is you need to have both vivid imagery plus the faces of the crew."
