Science Moves but Slowly Slowly

Mar 7

Ten backgrounds are ready.
I’m on kind of an astronomy kick lately, so a few of these designs are starry themed. This set was made with software, markers, crayons, watercolor, microscope photography, and some photos from the Hubble telescope (courtesy NASA). One of the fun things about making these designs is that sometimes I get to learn about new fields and artistic styles, and this set led me to some unfamiliar corners of the internet and the public library. Personal favorite moment? That book about observing the heavens that warned me to never look directly at the sun. On page 238. I mean I think that was front page information.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these designs.
