A Small Piece Of Something Large

This is section of a probably-just-about-finished illustration that will be in An Illustrated Guide to the Universe, which is what I currently spend every waking moment thinking about and working on (and likely every sleeping moment too). Although there is still quite a way to go, although it is hard to believe at this point that everything will come together in the shape of a book, and in spite of the fact that there won't be nearly enough stars in it? It's not going too badly.
