How can you create a universe without a sun?

Is it a cat? The first sketch looked more like a dog. But this guy is something in between. One thing I know for sure: he has a hat.

I just launched my Kickstarter project! Click the image below for more info! Or read on for some general info. Thanks dudes!!
I'm Michelle Romo and I run the ongoing art project / product line / super fun good time Crowded Teeth!
A few years back, I completed a project where I did an illustration a day for a year and at the end of the year I turned it into a handmade limited edition book. I wanted to expand on that idea and make a bigger and better version of it!
SUPER MINI UNIVERSE!
The plan for Super Mini Universe is to do alternating months of illustration and construction for a year to create a giant cohesive year long art project.
Starting March 1st, I would draw something every day building a month long super illustration. Then in April I would build a physical, 3D version of what I drew in March using various media and techniques, including layered laser cut wood, plush, stained glass, paint, paper etc.
Illustration would start again in May, picking up where March left off, and in June I would go back to construction, and so on. At that end of the year I would have one continuous, enormous illustration of the Super Mini Universe, and a huge, cohesive 3D version of it as well!
So the schedule would be:
March 2012: Draw
April 2012: Build March's Drawings
May 2012: Draw
June 2012: Build May's Drawings
July 2012: Draw
August 2012: Build July's Drawings
September 2012: Draw
October 2012: Build September's Drawings
November 2012: Draw
December 2012: Build November's Drawings
January 2013: Draw
February 2013: Build January's Drawings
March 2013 - CELEBRATE!
At the end of the year I will host an art show to celebrate the magic!
We will all hug and rejoice!
Throughout the year I will be making weekly blog posts to update the project. There will be a handmade book at the end of the project that will consist of the photos and illustrations posted in the blog.
