An illustration of the constellation Perseus.   It was originally done for an artbook project, but I think that’s been delayed for some time (possibly until late fall?)  Anyhow, I’ve been sitting on this for a while, but here you are.
And a bit about the constellation itself! 
The brightest star in its formation is 5,000 times brighter than our sun, another star is a nova, and another, one of the most famous stars, is Algol, whose Arabic name means “The Demon Star” and is actually the first set of eclipsing binary stars ever discovered, giving the impression of Medusa’s blinking demon eye.  Perseus encompasses 3 deep space nebulae, 4 open clusters, and the second brightest object in the known universe. In this image Medusa’s stronger, immortal sister, Stheno, lurks behind Perseus preparing to eclipse him.

This is so gorgeous.. check out Stheno in the back there, all looming and powerful, about to wreck some shit— I love it!
