Ship ready to sail, the universe awaited. It was time to bring our two worlds together. Like the ship, my original rendering of Polaris was a bit simplistic. Ash thought it looked like a record spinning on a turntable. :D She had the fantastic idea to off-set the center. When I set about it, I had a vision of Star Wars and the stars in the title theme zooming at me. I was inspired to create that same sense of deep space and forward motion, while keeping clear portrayal of the steady North Star burning at the center. The last touch was another Ash suggestion, pushing the ship just out of the circle of the universe at the bottom-right—a tiny detail that created that final illusion of motion. Now her ship was sailing.
