"Did you sink again in stars
And in clouds and in high skies?
If only you wouldn't forget me,
Soul of my life."
-Mihai Eminescu Blue Flower

Mihai Eminescu was a Romantic poet, novelist and journalist, often regarded as the most famous and influential Romanian poet.Eminescu was an active member of the Junimea literary society and he worked as an editor for the newspaper Timpul ("The Time"), the official newspaper of the Conservative Party (1880–1918). His poetry was first published when he was 16 and he went to Vienna to study when he was 19. The poet's Manuscripts, containing 46 volumes and approximately 14,000 pages, were offered by Titu Maiorescu as a gift to the Romanian Academy during the meeting that was held on 25 January 1902.[3] Notable works include Luceafărul (The Vesper/The Evening Star/The Lucifer/The Daystar), Odă în metru antic (Ode in Ancient Meter), and the five Letters (Epistles/Satires). In his poems he frequently used metaphysical, mythological and historical subjects. In general his work was influenced by the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer."- wikipedia…
As a romanian, i really liked this poem, the 1st strophe was the main inspiration. If u see my gallery this is something that i've already tried to represent (see here:… ) but as you can see, it was a total fail. So I suddenly wanted to re-make it.

Semnifications: The moon and the sun, together with the stars, are the signs of knowledge, inspiration, art and creation.
The clock represents time, the 2 indicators are opposited, representing the main theme in the poem:"The eternal genius ,being alone with his creating and the girl as a passive voice from the real earth which cannot reach the eternal place in which time is instict (that being the artowork/ masterpiece etc.)
The guy doesn't have a face because the genius is more of an idea, an ideal or a goal for the artist, a genius does not acknowledge himself as being one.
All together ilustrate the main idea of the poem which goes like this: "The artist is damned to be forever alone with his creations, never to know true happines, and if he meets his happiness , it'll vanish, the genius returning to being shrouded in loneliness, his only happiness being to help others with his works and to delight them, or to force them out of their self-centered universe.

I hope you enjoy this, it was really hard to make T.T
I didn't have any screentone due to not being able to have since in my country there is no such thing and few people know about manga. Also ordering from ebay or amazon would cost me too much, so I had to use the black ink bullpoint pen ( i think this is how it's called). And yes, i dont use a G/Maru or other pens like those to make my stuff since I can't get my hands on any >__<.

Thank you for support!
Time this took: 2much to be appreciated but @ 17-30 hs. or one week of focusing entirely on this (especially because I had to make tons of black small dots to resamble the screentone).
