This depiction of the constellation Leo is part of Inked and Screened's series of Celestial Bodies.
These hand drawn designs encompass a wide range of astronomical phenomena within our visible star system. Utilizing three separate layers of ink (including two passes with a glow-in-the-dark type) rendered atop specialty ‘Nightshift Blue’ paper canvas, these designs are meant to resemble the heavens themselves. Specially blended phosphors within the ‘Heavenly White’ coats of ink are applied to each constellation, becoming energized when exposed to light. When in dark or low light settings the text will seemingly disappear while each cluster of stars shine bright!
Each design is screen printed on top of 11" x 17" paper canvas.
