I go to the University of Notre Dame, the one with the Golden DomeTM and the big ego. (I actually think they might have trademarked "Golden Dome." It's the sort of thing they'd do if they could get away with it.) I picked up a free notebook from Admissions when I was hosting a prospie, because I like notebooks. This one had "ND" on it in raised letters and said "Home is where the dome is" on the back. Inside, interspersed with the actual paper, it had inspiring, romantic, gag-making, drunk-on-kool-aid quotes about Notre Dame, which I tore out as soon as my prospie wasn't looking. Seriously, our admissions propaganda is indistinguishable from my older sister's parody of our admissions propaganda. It's very sad.
I finally got around to painting it:

Because I like space and Firefly and free speech.
This is what it looks like open:

I'm pleased with the symmetry given that I free-handed it, only looking at one side at a time, but I wish it didn't look quite so much like the gravity funnel from that episode of Doctor Who where they're orbiting a black hole.
Here's a detail of the planet and the writing:

You can still sort of see the pencil guidelines. Oops. I wish I could get rid of the "ND."

What do you think? Comments are always appreciated! Cheesy

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy

You did a great job with the symmetry! I kind of like the ND still there. It's like your dark little secret. Cheesy
