“The Universe Is Inside All Of Us”.
I’ve been interested in the universe i.e. outer space ever since I was a kid looking through telescopes with my dad, going to the science museum, watching science and space related shows. The universe and space has been on my mind lately and I decided to incorporate it into my work. I wish the scanned piece [above] showed the full ombre effect transitions of purples to blues to green like the photo [below] but alas technology does at times have its drawbacks. Even when I tried to change the levels, brightness, contrast, saturation etc.. I just could not get the effect to come through in the on screen vs the physical item. There were several steps involved for this piece, the hardest part was waiting during the drying processes in between each new layer or element being added.
I discovered a new [to me] album that I’ve had on repeat, My Fear and Me by [the now defunct group] BIRD. I was all set to start looking up more of their work when I found out they are no longer together. Oh well, at least this one disc is pretty epic. Especially if you are into indie/gothy rock from the UK. Think dark ethereal music with hauntingly beautiful vocals. My favorite track is “A war”.
And on the theme of recommendations… currently I am reading The Faerie Guardian [Book 1 of The Creepy Hollow Series] by Rachel Morgan, and Night Study from the [Study Series] by Maria V. Snyder. I finished reading Staked [Iron Druid Chronicles] by Kevin Hearne and Dark Heart of Magic [Black Blade Series] by Jennifer Estep. I’m glad that the Game of Thrones season is back. I won’t give away any spoilers, but I can’t wait for the next episode and I’ll let it at that.
