Lenticular

6

as mentioned in this earlier post, lenticular clouds are typically formed near mountains, as air, which flows over and down the their sides, will overshoot and spring back up (much like how a car will continue to bounce a bit after going over a speed bump). the air oscillates like this for a while, with clouds forming on the upward part of the wave as the moist rising air cools.

lenticular clouds are a bundle of movement, yet look stationary, as the flow of  air up one side of the mountain replenishes the cloud on the windward side, while the dry air flowing down the other side dries the cloud out on the leeward side. these clouds can appear to hover for hours or even days until weather conditions change, and are even occasionally confused for ufos.

Iam8bit’s 10th Anniversary show is here!

I did a few pieces for the show (opening Tomorrow! Details here!) and these are the lenticular prints. I’ll upload a video later but for now know that the star power Mario is as intense in person as the GIF version.

If you’re going to the show, take some pictures and let me know how it is!

UPDATE!
The show sold out of the prints so I’ve put my APs on my shop (there are like 3 of each so I’m sorry that I don’t have more).

Never mind. Sold out :(
