PILLARS OF CREATION
Some of you may already know that I am completely fascinated by cosmology and astronomy. I made this poster a few months back inspired by The Pillars of Creation which are located within the Eagle Nebula. Just to give you a sense of scale, one of the pillars is 7 light years tall… It would take Voyager 140,000 years to travel that distance. Blows me away every time.
‘ORION’ IN PROGRESS
This guy is the third addition to ‘The Nebulae’ series which also includes Helix and Carina. It’s refreshing to draw a guy since the last time was over a year ago. What can I say, I love to draw long flowy hair.
She is my newest creation, and I must say, I am pretty fond of her. For this piece, I really enjoyed working with darker colors and recreating the mood of the Carina Nebula. Soon you will see Orion, the third and final piece that is part of the Nebula series. You can purchase a print of Carina on Society6 & Etsy.
