"A Nova's Glow" By Tabitha Weaver
Upon brainstorming, researching, and trial and error; I decided to use one of the more encouraging lines in “Castle of Glass” from Linkin Park’s 2012 album Living Things. The line I am referencing is the phrase “Warm me up in a nova’s glow.” Any type of warming sensation is felt as welcoming when we feel like our world is falling apart in front of us. Therefore, I created the warming welcome of a nova’s glow. I then decided to create Linkin Park’s logo in glass that appears as if it has been shattered and broken, inspired by the lines “ ‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass. Hardly anything there for you to see”. While hardships may come up in our lives and leave cracks throughout it – they influence who we are and who we will become. When all is said and done we are still recognizable, much like the logo in my design. I used Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to create this original work of art.
