This is STILL a Work in Progress...
(Behance has deprecated the WIP pages, and forcing WIP projects be published in the same class as complete projects)
"Dark Star Exploration" integrates graphic and textual elements to create a mood and a journey, simultaneously existing independently and in union.
The work is the second in a series devoted to interstellar illustration and exploration; the first in the series is "Gravity Moon."
