Have you met APAK? They are a husband and wife duo, Aaron and Ayumi Piland, who make wonderful paintings about exploration and nature and animals and humans and crystals. And the vastness of space, or maybe microscopic life. Heck, just look at some of their work. (Click on an image to go to its originating page):
The creatures APAk depicts remind me of the prince and his cousins from Katamari Damacy, and also of another husband and wife art team, the locally-based Opertura. All of these characters seem part of the same universe, maybe even the same galaxy. Neighboring planets. I think they'd all get along.
APAK has prints of their work available on etsy, and you can go to their tumblr to see even more of their work, including non-print stuff like these adorable felted buddies.
