Illustration Friday: Space

I love making pictures with lots of stars! And linocuts really lend themselves to rich blacks. So, needless to say, I've made a lot of artwork that fits itself into this week's Illustration Friday theme, Space. Since I've done several blog posts about images of our planet from space, I thought I'd share some art that mostly features stars.

Above are the closing and opening pages from my artist book, Earth.

This was a messy test piece I made for a book, but I really like the way it turned out. The quote is by NASA Astronaut, Edgar Mitchell. "My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity."

And here's a little night sky picture from my series of Colorado images. Now I'm off to make more stars for my next picture based on The Night Circus!


  1. I do like your "messy" test piece as well. I think it's quite charming!

    P.S.: Thanks for your lovely words!

  2. I love your stars with the bright colors against the black. I've been doing some linos myself lately so it's great to find your blog!

  3. Your blog is wonderful. love your star spangled illos!

  4. How are you faring in all your fires?
    May luck and hope be on your side!

  5. Thanks, Dinah- We are fine in Steamboat (so far.) There are soooo many fires in other places in Colorado, though. It's really heartbreaking.
