A recent illustration for American Way Magazine concerning the return of arcades across the country. People forgetting about apps and their smart phones to go back to the classics. Finally a movement I can stand behind. Hopefully more will pop up in NYC! You can read the full article here. Big thanks to ADs Betsy Semple and Brian Smith.

Airglow ripples over Tibet

Why would the sky look like a giant target? Airglow. Following a giant thunderstorm over Bangladesh in late April, giant circular ripples of glowing air appeared over Tibet, China, as pictured above. The unusual pattern is created by atmospheric gravity waves, waves of alternating air pressure that can grow with height as the air thins, in this case about 90 kilometers up. Unlike auroras powered by collisions with energetic charged particles and seen at high latitudes, airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light in a chemical reaction. More typically seen near the horizon, airglow keeps the night sky from ever being completely dark.

Mystical Croissant-Head (so named by Ben Hatke over on the twitters), started out as a meeting doodle… as so many of us do.

Been thinking alot about a bigger story for MyCH & Friend. Haven’t found one that feels quite right for them yet, so i’m just having fun drawing them a bunch in the meantime.
