This gorgeous video combines a bunch of science with beautiful flat design (all the rage right now).
Kurzgesagt is an AWESOME youtube channel and their German name literally means "in a nutshell". They are a group of designers, journalists and musicians on a mission to make science beautiful, producing videos explaining things like space, time and evolution. Basically they are flipping awesome and you should sit down with a cup of [insert preferred beverage here] and binge watch the lot.
These illustrations are just so beautiful and simple. Often it's much harder to simplify an image rather than get caught up in the detail - the minimalist artists dilemma.
Back when I was studying science I was appalled by the boring way information was communicated, but in the last five or so years the tables have turned. Access to technology has opened up the door for wonderful creative people to share science with us all.
According to Wikipedia the definition of a scientist is "A scientist, in a broad sense, is one engaging in a systematic activity to acquire knowledge" therefore, anyone who has a hunger for knowledge is indeed a scientist.
You can find all sorts of amazing artists while searching the wonderful world of the internet... I love Jennifer Tyers landscapes so much. There is a beautiful childish simplicity in the large blocks of colour and the simplification and almost illustration like. They also remind me of the beautiful water colours my beautiful late Aunty Carmiña did in the 50's.
This image is from her 2013 collection called Double Dipper. She made these works while she was on a residency in Byron Bay.
I adore the brightness creeping in to her more recent works. This piece is from her 2014 collection called Tropical Garden.
I almost want to climb into these glorious bright watercolours and skip through these magical landscapes.
Her work brings light + colour + joy into the real world.

I loved photographing the moon tonight... I had mere seconds to get my gear together as I thought the clouds would not let the moonlight through. So glad I had a painting stool and a placemat handy (spare charged up battery came in handy too).
Maybe the clouds made it more interesting - the movement of the clouds adds some perspective.
This kind so reminds me of a Constable painting or how heaven is supposed to look (at night).
Happy lunar eclipse world :)
I LOVE SCIENCE and I LOVE ILLUSTRATION. This video is a perfect combination of the two... and we can all learn something while witnessing some stop motion beauty.
It's amazing the great things you find on twitter :)
