The swirling illustrations created by artist James R. Eads aim to explore humankind's relationship to the natural world.

The vibrant multi-colored pieces of art reflect a world run by imagination in which space is combined with architecture, animals are used to reflect music and the moon sits peacefully among nature and man-made objects. The "swirling" effect the artist uses to represent the body of a dragon and wind in the night sky is clearly reminiscent of Van Gogh's 'The Starry Night.' The use of these "swirls" are both inspired by and a salute to the famous artist. Based in LA, the artist is heavily influenced by music and is sought-after to create posters for popular rock bands.

The swirling illustrations created by James Eads beautifully represent a world that exists solely in his imagination.
