The nighttime illustrations by John Lee aka Keebs

The nighttime illustrations by John Lee aka Keebs

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

Our daily routines often lead us to think that beyond a certain time of night, the world stops. As if life goes on pause from when we go to sleep to when we wake up. The truth is, however, very far from this thought. John Lee, better known as Keebs, knows this very well. 

Originally from Torrance, after a stint working in Korea, Keebs returned to Los Angeles’ Koreatown where he still lives and works today. His career started completely self-taught, beginning with drawing and offering to make posters for events or EP covers. These are things he still does, but besides that he spends part of his time working on personal projects where his style and favorite subjects take over. 

The night, with its dark and desaturated colors, is the undisputed star of his illustrations. Keebs plays with the less bright tones of purples, pinks, blues and greys to restore those suspended atmospheres typical of the late hours of the night. 

And precisely because so few manage to survive sleep, Keebs’ works become a sort of testimony to the people of the night, of fearless faces illuminated by neon lights, of after-hours snacks. 

We’ve selected some of his illustrations, but follow him on Instagram so you don’t miss all his work.

The best astronomy photos of 2022

The best astronomy photos of 2022

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

Space is mysterious and frightening territory, we observe from Earth phenomena that most of the time, unless you are an astronomer or very passionate, cannot be fully explained. Remaining are the fascination of seeing them from afar, observing celestial bodies, night skies and everything that inspires fantastic tales and makes us imagine the presence of other worlds light years away from us.
Some phenomena require patience because they are very slow, others are difficult to witness because they are extemporaneous, all of which makes photographing astronomical phenomena a very difficult task, and each year the best shots are awarded at the Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

3,000 photos entered in 2022 by photographers from 67 countries, including the winning one by photographer Gerald Rhemann, who managed to capture a rare event that made many look up to the sky last December. It was Christmas Day when comet Leonard crossed the sky over Tivoli, Namibia. Rhemann managed to capture the moment before the celestial body was blown away by the solar wind, and the energy-charged shot earned first place in the contest.
For the next 12 months the shot will be on display in London, at the National Maritime Museum, along with the other entries and divided into thematic categories (galaxies, sun, moon, landscapes…).
