Grace Ebert

Image © Andrei Savitsky, cupoty.com. Winner: Micro. "Glass worms can vary in length from about half an inch to two inches. On the right side of this image you can see the large tracheal bubbles that serve as hydrostatic organs (or swim bladders). These bubbles allow the larva to keep its horizontal position in the water column, while also helping to regulate the depth of its immersion.

Despite being stationary, the pups have typical canine qualities like plump bodies, panting tongues, and pink bows adorning their ears. Each figure has a distinct facial expression, whether curious, joyful, or contemplative. "When I make a…

Christopher Jobson

Earlier this week we were sent this heartbreaking new animation from Oh Yeah Wow (previously) that was created in direct response to the horrific Bushfire Crisis currently unfolding across Australia. Titled "Tomorrow's on Fire," the short addresses the collective hopelessness felt in the face of political inaction, and the loss of 28 lives, thousands of homes, and potentially hundreds of millions of animals, in a fire season greatly exacerbated by the effects of global warming. Oh Yeah Wow's animation inspired us to put together a quick fundraiser. We reached out to artists across the globe and asked if anyone might…
