When I saw these incredible illustrations by freelance designer David Fuhrer, I was immediately reminded of the mnemonic my teacher taught us in school: My Very Energetic Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. That learning technique helped me to remember the order of the planets in terms of distance from the sun: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto. That was when Pluto was still considered a full planet!

Fuhrer’s project, The Cosmos, is a set of infographics that depict the planets in our solar system with accurate scale and surface detail for an upcoming documentary and German book. The renderings of these digital planets have such incredible depth that it was hard to believe they were illustrations! The bio on Fuhrer’s website says it best, stating that, “his imagination in unity with his broad library of skills has allowed him to create some of the most out-of-this-world images… [His] work is a rare treat for the eyes and mind as the depth of his work is as mesmerizing as the feel that his pieces exude.”

Melissa Hartley is an artist, graphic designer, cat lover, tea drinker, Francophile, movie and music lover with a terrible sweet tooth. She graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a BA (Distinction) in design, minor in illustration.

Her compositions vary from simple still-life studies, to confrontation figures against undefined backgrounds, in a dream-like state. Others highlight the turbulent relationship man has with nature. Each subject is attractive yet somehow disturbing.

She desires to create images of beauty and mystery that allow the viewer to find their own personal significance in them.

She lives in Sydney with her husband and two cats, Ludwig and Wolfgang.

Solana Beach by Larry Marshall Photography

Looking south to Solana Beach California. You can see the multi-million dollar homes perched high on the eroding cliffs. I stacked 10 stop and 6 stop Heliopan ND filters to extend the shutter time and calm the raging surf.

Spitzkop by Mario Moreno

Intense sunset captured from the viewpoint at Spitzkop. This is the highest point accessible by vehicle in the Knysna area. From here you can see the top of the Prince Alfred Pass, George, Natures Valley, the Knysna Heads, Sedgefield, and tons of beautiful Fynbos. Stunning views of the Outeniqua Mountains.
