These collaborative paintings done by Aaron and Ayumi Piland -- who are also known as Apak Studio -- are quaintly cute. There is no apparent theme in any single painting but throughout their body a work a soothing, utopic out of space look is traced.

The paintings are of what seem to be moments captured in humble islands in the outer space with adorable inhabitants doing menial tasks such as napping and gardening. The colors used in the paintings are very vibrant and almost florescent; they contrast magnificently with the dark space.

The paintings resemble an Alice in Wonderland setting that is quite surreal and yet adorable and peaceful. These dreamy illustrations are skillfully put together and are extremely heartwarming.
