Most of you will recognize Mercer Mayer from his prolific critter books (a childhood staple), but he has many gorgeously lavish, touching illustrations in his portfolio.

I used to have dreams about the apocalypse, in which the planets realigned and moved close to the earth in strange but gorgeous arrangements and colors. Bill Higgins’s series of exploratory paintings reminds me of these dreams.

It’s interesting to think about just how much we take the alignment of the incomprehensibly majestic cosmos for granted. We often don’t notice the sun, moon or stars at all…but I always make a point to look up and marvel just a bit.

Lisha’s Body Art is the work of Lisha Simpson. She paints some fantastic cut-out illusions on her own hand!

I saved so many images from Kelly Louise Judd’s portfolio. I just could not stop.

Her delicate paintings are inspired by fairy tales, folklore, ghosts, psychology, nature and Victoriana.

One finds many beautiful beasts and symbols in her work…

It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen her work in person, but it’s really a sight to behold.

Her paintings (often very large scale) transport you into a psychedelic wonderland of dark, sickly sweet delights.
