All the Stars
I'm often inspired by the text from traditional hymns, and sometimes it comes to me during church in the midst of the song. This is from the old hymn, "I Sing the Mighty Power of God" by Isaac Watts and mixes some Quaker star motifs, an old sampler lettering style with a more contemporary man-in-the-moon and a swirling border in a high-contrast color scheme.
