Amsterdam based Stefan Glerum’s style is like a melting pot of illustration heritage.

Kansas City, Missouri based Jaime Rovenstine’s geometric shapes are married with landscapes that look like they’re from another planet shrouded in dots. Her paintings are most inspired by natural organisms and biospheres. She has come to see her paintings as small windows into some sort of dream-world. Some paintings feel like they’re underwater, some out in space, some in the mountains.
