The hottest part of the summer has hit here in the desert and it has been getting over 100 degrees for a few weeks now. I've been staying inside during the day to avoid the strange effect that the desert sun and heat can have on a person. The type of heat where the endless glare of the sun and the rising heatwaves in the distance can cause mirages and earth and sky ripple in unexpected ways. There is a Tumblr by an artist, Penablanca, that I occasionally check into because the work quite often looks like the tricks that the desert can cause on the mind. All the works below are from there and I hope that you like them!
