Earth Stars by waltzinghippie Earth Stars by waltzinghippie
Edit: HOLY COW, a DD!! I am so very flattered and humbled, thank you so so much! And thank you ^pica-ae for featuring me, I am beyond stunned!! You are all wonderful! :heart:

Hiya! So, back in college I was a Graphic Design major, and I had to take a few typography classes. My typography teacher hated me. I don't know why, but she was just a really mean person and liked to yell at us a lot. She made me cry on my birthday!

Anyway, she really turned me off to typography and I never really bothered with it despite being interested in it. Recently I discovered seanwes.com and I absolutely fell in LOVE with his work. I got so inspired I decided to make one of my all-time favorite sayings into an art piece!! And MAN, typography is HARD. I'm not one to use a ruler if I don't have to, so my lines aren't all very straight. Plus, I used this thick watercolor board which is really textured (duh), but I'm really pleased with how it came out! I have all sorts of other ideas I want to try out now - so glad I finally got over my intimidation of it!!

Lots of references used here, as usual! ;)

Earth Stars by ~waltzinghippie is a wonderfully drawn traditional piece of typographic lettering. The letters and words have a great flow and the illustrative parts are detailed and full of character. ( Featured by pica-ae )

I like the image you used for the center and the quote is nice too.

This reminds me of Lawrence Krauss' quote about how we are all literally made of stardust, which shows us how poetic science and reality can be. I love the design you made in the middle, how the sun and the moon complete a circle together as they kiss, nestled in the soft clouds.

Yes, I totally agree! I love this saying because it's true and it's poetic, just like you said - it just all comes together! Thank you, hun :heart:
