It’s strange how the works of Dutch illustrator Maarten Donders always make me long for times when I wasn’t even born yet. His latest work is an LP cover for space-rock band Monomyth, for which Maarten drew a futuristic city where nature and science come together. The atmosphere in his illustrations is fascinating: sometimes warm, sometimes dark and alienating.
