Lyra, also known as the “lyre,” forms part of the summer triangle with its brightest star, Vega, and is bordered by Draco, Hercules, Vulpecula, and Cygnus.
The nine-pointed star and tree motif was designed for the wedding between Jenna Davis and Gingham Rocketship, which took place on 9/9/09.
The original piece was painted with acrylics on a 9×12 canvas board, then screenprinted with white and brown ink using a stencil. The final product was then photographed and digitally enhanced.
Any “imperfections” in the piece are due to the artistic process, or to lighting and the texture of the paint interfering with the photography process.
This piece of art (along with the others in this constellation series) was a collaborative effort by the following people:
Daogreer Earth Works: design layout, stencil preparation, silk screening, and final photography and digital alteration
Djstortion: stencil preparation
Gingham Rocketship: design concept and stencil preparation
Jenna Davis: design concept, acrylic backgrounds and stars, and stencil preparation
Michaele Cooper: tree and star motif
Roxanne Caston: stencil preparation
