Never Seen Stars by DestinyBlue Never Seen Stars by DestinyBlue
The night is thick with light; like every night since she was born. A neon ooze contaminates the sky, and drowns the stars.
She could tell you every constellation, their ages, moons and stories: But she has never seen one star.
She's learned so much about them, and desire to see them burns inside her, like a million tiny suns.

This drawing is for the travelers, for those who want to see beyond their own four walls.
I know I try to travel as much as I can with my work, and chose conventions in places I would like to see. I thought I'd seen stars till I went out outback Australia, where the sky drips with them. While there I learned many people from Australia have never seen snow, which makes sense when you think about it :) (being English I've barley seen sun ;)) Mm, I know there's still so much more I want to see and experience. 

Where do you want to go, and what do you want to see? :heart:

I'm not content with a lot of elements in this, but sometimes you just have to let it go #thankselsa

I want to go and see the northern lights in a clear sky! Occasionally some are said to appear even down here where I live, but we've got so much light pollution I can't even see the Milky Way on a clear day ... last time they said the northern lights would be visible I stayed up all night and nothing happened. So my dream is to go to Norway some day with my camera!

IWantToBeEmmaPeel Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2015
Hi, you probably don't remember me, but I certainly remember you. I met you at Glasgow MCM last year, and bought this print. I was the girl dressed as Black Widow who asked if the "Not Alone" print was about recovery.
i also chose this print because it reminded me of a book I had when I was very young called "Laura's Star". I've attached the Laura's Star Book Cover so you can see it. I remembered the art as being better than it was, but the sentiment is still there.
Anyway, I'm not really sure why I'm telling you this. I suppose I want to remind you that your art has a real impact on people, not just because of your technical talent, but because of the feeling that you put into every piece. And I want to thank you for reminding me at a low point in my life that sometimes, things don't have to be complicated. They can be as simple and innocent as a star.

Your use of color and lighting is just amazing!

Also, I agree with your note in the description. I always love to see new places and cultures. In fact, my fiance is from Thailand, and has never seen snow before. But we're going on a trip this December, so she'll get to see snow for the first time in her life : )

(I think artists are rarely as satisfied with their own works as other people are)

I love love love the colours.  I had already faved this picture before I read that lovely story. :)  Now I want to see the stars in Australia too.  I live in a big city with a lot of light pollution, so I can only see a couple of constellations from home.  One time, I went camping and WOW!  The sky at night looked like black paper covered in glitter.
