Cassiopeia Finished!

Cassiopeia, the supernova remnant that I was working on for so long, is finished. Since you can't really see the dimensionality of the images on the post, except in the originals, I'm not sure how this will correlate for people with the images in the previous post.

The astronomer I made it for said: "It is gorgeous. My colleagues have been most impressed." I worked very hard to make a pendant that is of necessity abstracted, but still kept a strong send of the integrity of the nova while of course making good art. I'm very pleased.


The picture of the nova pendant is OK but I expect to do better. (Bear with me on this, I am after all a photographer.)

I've been working on the exploding flowers for the Madagascar ocean jasper. I'm using a comic book vocabulary that seems to be really working. I wrote about the stone in Platypus Et Al.

The antibiotics seem to be finally working, so hopefully completely fine soon and yes, this is still the post-World Fantasy bug. It's been very tedious.

Mood: Hopeful, yet again
