Saturn’s Beautiful Rings
The Cassini spacecraft was a project launched by NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency that has yielded large amounts of useful data and many beautiful pictures. This one in particular shows the C ring on the right, and the B on the left. The red hues indicate dirty particles and blue the cleaner ice. The rings of Saturn are labelled from the inside out with rings, D, C, B, and A, followed by F, G, and E. In order to image the rings in such quality the Cassini spacecraft used its Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph in resolution some 100 times that of the Voyager 2 spacecraft.

SPACE! The Gallery Show

Opens Friday, June 21st at 7pm at Gallery 1988: WEST in Hollywood, California. 

This show is my way of perpetuating the message people like Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson have dedicated their lives to. There is also a severe lack of incredible space art, and I wanted to change that. I’m really proud of this show, and I hope you guys will have a chance to see it in person.

"And I’ll only feel smaller and smaller"36x48x2” ink on cradled clayboard2013for “SPACE: The Gallery Show" at Gallery1988 West(sold)railways are, at their core, a series of paths between very very distant places. the signal alerts you if two paths are soon to cross. the viewer is moving backwards into the darkness, watching the universe get larger and larger, feeling smaller and smaller themselves. all while recognizing the potential of crossing anothers path, but the signal isnt lit for now. its some kind of goofball metaphor for “hey, theres life out there. we just gotta keep moving in a direction ourselves.”

railways are, at their core, a series of paths between very very distant places. the signal alerts you if two paths are soon to cross. the viewer is moving backwards into the darkness, watching the universe get larger and larger, feeling smaller and smaller themselves. all while recognizing the potential of crossing anothers path, but the signal isnt lit for now. its some kind of goofball metaphor for “hey, theres life out there. we just gotta keep moving in a direction ourselves.”

M8 Lagoon Nebula
The Lagoon Nebula (catalogued as Messier 8 or M8, and as NGC 6523) is a giant interstellar cloud in the constellation Sagittarius. It is classified as an emission nebula and as a H II region.

The Lagoon Nebula was discovered by Giovanni Hodierna before 1654 and is one of only two star-forming nebulae faintly visible to the naked eye from mid-northern latitudes. Seen with binoculars, it appears as a distinct oval cloudlike patch with a definite core. A fragile star cluster appears superimposed on it.
