Crips in Space

 

Detail from "Aurora," watercolor by Holly Morningstar.  [Image Description: A highly rendered watercolor painting shows a traditionally beautiful femme-presenting figure with long brown hair. She(?) is wearing goggles and holding one hand up. Her other hand holds a rose to her lips, and its petals transform into flames that in turn become galaxies as they expand outward (blocking our view of half her face). Closer examination reveals subtle lines and rivets in her skin, casting her status as an organic human into question.]

Detail from "Omniscience," watercolor  by Holly Morningstar.  [Image Description: A close up portrait of a feminine-appearing person with darker skin, blue eyes and facial paint, and dark purple hair.  They appear to be pressing a piece of fabric against their cheek and lips, but the fabric is made of the nebulae and stars of space.]
