What’s Katsuhiro Otomo up to these days? His latest project is definitely and eye-opening one. Called Inside Babel, it’s a recreation of Bruegel’s famous The (Little) Tower of Babel painting, but done with a large portion cut out. More info here. I also wasn’t aware that he had created this mural for the Sendai Airport back in 2015.

Nem is a fantastic artist who mainly draws pixel art. She just launched a Patreon, that you can check out here. As she explains, “I have social anxiety, so it is hard for me to do work outside,” and this is a way to try and bring in some extra income.
