Multi-disciplinary artist and illustrator James R. Eads plays with motion and color to render harmonizing illustrations of people and nature. With swirling van Gogh inspired skies and percussive strokes of color, his style is well-suited for meditations on human connection and the relationships between humans and the natural world.

Get lost in a mesmerizing galactic collaboration between James R. Eads and The Glitch.

The combination is mesmerizing. Eads’ work already has that visionary quality that evokes other worlds, but the motion McDaniel adds seems to suck your eyes right into the screen. Eads says, “I think what made this collaboration so powerful is at the core of why we both create—we use the process of creation as a form of meditation. It’s a place of refuge where we can breathe and take in the world and in return give back some peace. And I think other people can feel that, and when they come across one of these illusions they pause and allow them selves to get lost in it. There’s something extremely calming and mesmerizing about the illusions, there is magic is in the subtlety.”
