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!

Santiago Uceda used his unique style to decorate this birdhouse for an upcoming benefit show in Portland, Oregon.  The event is called “Put A Bird In It“, and participants were asked to build and paint their own birdhouse.  All of the birdhouses will be auctioned off during Portland Design Week, and the proceeds will go toward music and art programs in Portland public schools.

Jen Lobo recently worked on series of paintings based on space, and here are a few pieces that were specifically inspired by nebulae.  Here is Jen’s own description of her inspiration:

“I had been reading about space and the Hubble Telescope and star births and I absolutely fell in love with nebulae being described as star nurseries. I love the notion of these bright little bursts of light being born out of dust. The names of the nebulae were just begging to be illustrated. Space is such a wealth of inspiration, sometimes I’ll read theories, I remember once I was reading about black holes and I get to a point where my brain literally cannot compute. The technical reasons for these magical occurrences are so complex. I just am not capable of grasping some of these concepts, but then the names harken back to ancient theories of the stars and gods. It’s almost childlike.”
