We're going to the moon!!! Or, some really far-off distant planet! NASA, probably just sitting around their offices really bored about looking into space around the holidays, have created "vintage" style travel posters for 3 newly discovered planets, including the ever-popular Kepler-16b. As the Guardian notes, "(The posters) created by the space agency’s visual strategists Joby Harris, David Delgado and Dan Goods, the posters feature art-deco typography, bold colours and classic design, evocative of the golden age of travel."

One of our favorite artists, Swedish illustrator Kilian Eng, seems to pump out incredible work faster than we can keep up with. One of his more recent projects has been the concept art for a "mind-bending action film" called Koyakatsi and directed by Ayoub Qanir.

Originally published September 16th, 2013: One of our favorite sites, 50watts' has a running feature where they showcase Japanese science-fiction scans from their ever-growing collections of books and catalogs on Japanese illustration and design. We love looking through old book illustrations, and the sci-fi genre always is chalk-full of he most surreal, colorful, and bizarre.

While in NYC this weekend, we were introduced to Japanese artist Masakatsu Sashie, as he was in town for his debut solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Coacervate. Showcasing a series of paintings that depict a world in the not so distant future, the show is based around the them of coacervate—from Latin “to assemble together or cluster”...

If the future looks like this, sign us up. The paintings by Tristram Lansdowne remind us of those amazing, massive futuristic SimCity 2000 apartment complexes that house thousands upon thousands of people and look like Ecotopia. Only these little worlds are floating over a flooded earth, possibly the result of global climate change's ultimate ending. Or maybe they are just wonderfully imaginative. Has anyone ever read Ecotopia? Was that just our college course on Utopian literature?

One of our favorite artists of the past three years, Sweden-based Kilian Eng, just released his new book, Object 10, through Floating World Comics. Because we like any good time to check in with Eng and see what new works and projects he has going on, we look back on his interview in the print pages of Juxtapoz in June 2012, where we discuss science-fiction, other universes, and Ligne Claire.

We kick of 2013 with one of our favorite artists of the moment, Swedish illustrator Kilian Eng. Featured in our magazine in the past, and on our site a bunch, we love his new series of black and white, science-fiction inspired works. Seems like Eng took some effective Moebius pills, and there is nothing wrong with that.

An artist we are prepping a feature on for the print magazine, Mark Moore Gallery proudly presents Terraformer, an inaugural exhibition of paintings by Brooklyn-based artist, Jean-Pierre Roy. Despite his photorealistic prowess, Roy's terrains are sourced from pure imagination – cinematic dystopias through a Dutch Golden Age lens.

A fantastic series of surreal, scientific, fantasy paintings by New York City based artist Cane Dojcilovic. As part of explaining his process, Cane notes, "Million brush strokes, million graphite threads… Simplifying complicated artfulness, eliminating hollow sentimentality into synthetic void… Million thoughts, million absences of thoughts… Complicating simple yet again, fragmenting…"
