Tom Jester  illustrated “Amoolia” for this year’s AeroShell AirVenture poster.  The event takes place every year in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin, and Amoolia has become a mascot of sorts for the event.  This year they decided to go with a more realistic illustration than in years past, and Tom’s style really brings Amoolia to life!

Here is a new 3d/realistic illustration that Tom Jester just completed, titled Ant Revolution.  It’s an experimental piece in which Tom used some new techniques and worked in some 3D elements.  As for the inspiration for the subject matter, here’s what Tom had to say:

It’s an environmental statement piece. It shows the destructive nature of humans in contrast to insects’ ability to work together and adapt to any adversity. While humans seem to be on a path of self destruction, ants will always focus on survival and what is good for the group as a whole. They operate as a unified entity, collectively working together to support the colony without corruption, a trait that humans could use to learn from. Ants will almost certainly will be around long after we are gone.”
