APOD: Milky Way over Moon Valley (2014 Dec 05) Image Credit & Copyright: Rafael Defavari http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap141205.html Explanation: Our Milky Way Galaxy arcs over a desolate landscape in this fantastic panoramic night skyview. The otherworldly scene looks across the arid, eroded terrain of the Valle de la Luna in the Chilean Atacama desert. Just along the horizon are lights from San Pedro, Chile, as well as the small villages of Socaire and Toconao, and a torturous winding road from the city of Calama to San Pedro. Taken on October 18th, the five panel mosaic also features the four galaxies easily visible from our fair planet's dark sky regions. At the far left, satellite galaxies known as the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are framed by their terrestrial namesakes. Much fainter and at the right, beyond the Milky Way's central bulge, is the Andromeda Galaxy. The most distant in view, Andromeda lies some 2.5 million light-years away. http://500px.com/rafaeldefavari Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=141205 #APOD

Brought my previous hand-lettered sign to life with color and texture in Photoshop. Scanned the lineart in at 300dpi, converted to vector and cleaned things up in Illustrator. Next I drop it into Photoshop to add paper textures, scrapes, gouges and grit. Adding noise also gives it some character. #typehunter #typehunting #badgehunting #vintageprints #vintageadvertising #thcostudio

Wishing I had a higher quality image of this 1880's lithograph business card for a Boston-based Glass Tablet Sign Maker. I'm sure @davesmithartist would love a scan, but alas I'm not bidding on the auction. It's currently at $175, which is out of my range for a small piece of beautiful ephemera. #typehunter #typehunting #signs #vintageadvertising

Good morning to you too. NYC Streets inspiration.

Hand sketched letter G with some swirlies!

I made 8 little reverse glass panels like this in different colours. All made for John Mayer's band members and friends and presented to them in 2013 at the 02 London show.#johnMayer#bornandraised#albumcovers#columbiarecords

I made this glass gilded sign for the back of my Morris Minor van. The Lettering is acid etched in two different size micas , the background is glue chipped with a cut glass surround. And also acid stippled. Various blending techniques and mother of pearl is scattered over this panel. The Gold Leaf is deep sandblasted and carved. #typography #etching#goldleaf #gilded#victorian #signwriting#signwriters

Victorian colour scheme.

Proof you can make everything beautiful with design and fantastic type. For the record, I already think saws are beautiful tools. #ohioquality #typehunter #typehunting #badgehunting #vintageadvertising
