    i love this style…i know artists “steal” from one another, but is this biting Chris Johanson’s style a little too hard? I know Johanson a lot of people, but the palette and shapes in many of MWJ’s work is soooo similar….Or are artists in the Northwest, Oregon, Northern Cali, etc. just tapping into the same “consciousness”?…….huh??

      i actually see very little of Johanson’s style here.. maybe Andrew Schoultz or Thomas Campbell but Johanson’s style is quite a bit different

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon


Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
