the illustrations of nick dewar are seemingly simple, but still quite intriguing in their subtlety.

I'd be more impressed if the top one showed a real star field.

from the first image, i take away the point that not only do different cultures identify different pictures in the stars as has been seen throughout history... but now our technology could also influence the shapes we see.

Regarding the second one, I often think about work while "working," as in "why the hell am I doing this?" I suck it up because it will pay for my next career. The countdown to quitting day begins!

I am lost on the third one..

the third one... i looked at it for a long before deciding if i liked it. it's called "oyster" which solves the mystery of what's sitting on the plate. the other thing that got me was use of the chair as more than just a prop... and then theres her mask while he's almost completely hidden....

whats the name of 1st and second one. is nick dewar an astronomer as well? 1st makes me think Astronomy helps people put life in perspective. its the importance of daily mundane affairs - vs - our own importance in the vast universe . we are just another spec of dust as to speak. the last one is About "Hidden desires" I think. Have you notices both the man and woman are hiding their identities from each other using the prop.

Cheers,
