Unintended Consequences in Marker Illustration

I was inspired to create this marker image of the sun and moon on the solstice. Yesterday, after I peeled the image off the sketch pad, I realized that the Sharpie color leaking through the paper and the stars I created as a guide had become new image all on its own. An unintended consequence, but a pretty one!

Happy Solstice & Merry Yule

For the solstice, I had intended to take an Instagram photo of the sunset today, but my phone geeked out and drained my battery suddenly, just when the sun was starting to dip. By the time it was charged enough to take a photo (charged at the AT&T store at the Mall of America - a real life saver!), it was dark.So I made this with a marker set, took a photo and applied filters. An unexpected and fun way to update the blog!
