My stars are not real constellations, as I'm sure you can tell, but a randomized scattering of dust. Ever since I was an art student, I've looked for ways to portray the organic and seemingly chaotic patterns of nature using the simple tools at my disposal. The chalk dust pattern, as a signifier for the stars, seems just right.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing several times. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges. There is also a little hand-painting around the moon.
