When I set out to work on the “Clockwork Universe” series, I had a steampunk aethetic in mind. Once I started working however, the series veered off in its own direction. While they’re not nearly as brassy as I originally had in mind, these images displayed a beauty that I couldn’t resist.
“Clockwork Universe 1” incorporates an image from Wikimedia Commons photographer HNH, an image created in ArtMatic, and an image of M74 taken by the Hubble Space Telescope taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. With a border added, I used this image for Mark, my astronomer brother’s, birthday card.
