    I don’t know why this reminds me of all the illustrations that distracted me in my history books. Somehow they were relevant to the material but really who wants to read history when you can just look at pictures.

    Yea I’m a big fan of Kent Williams. He comes form a long list of painters and illustrators that we’re taught under Barron Storey. If you like Kent you should also look up George Pratt, Jon J Muth, Bill Sienkiewicz and Dave Mckean. I remeber going to pratt studying drawing, and the professors would tell me Kent Williams and George Pratt went to Pratt. I was delighted to hear the news haha.

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!
