A star, eclipsed.
I considered everything from a simple pentagram to a Hollywood star on a dirty sidewalk.
But today’s prompt came on the heels of my first dip pen and assorted calligraphy nibs. I wanted to experiment a little with India ink, pens, water, a paintbrush, a shotglass… and that’s when this image popped into my head.
I wasn’t prepared to create a universe – or the blackness of space – with only half an ounce of ink. I hope this adequately suggests it.
I have no idea what I’m going to do about tomorrow’s prompt, “precious.” I have several great ideas, but not the skills to match.
