Lasso The Moon: 7 Stellar Moon Designs

The moon has been a source of wonder and mystery for eons, the basis for myths and legends, the home of gods and goddesses, the divine driving source behind inspiration and the appropriately monikered lunatics who howl at the full glowing orb.

No wonder, then, that the moon has also been the subject of many graphic designs. For this post, I wanted to illuminate the different ways the moon is rendered by talented artists across different genres and styles. I must admit this is one of the most difficult posts I’ve done for sheer volume of work from which to select, but I think I’ve done the heavens justice with these seven stellar moon designs.
