We love when one of our favorite contributors makes good and artist Kyle Brooks – known by the moniker BlackCatTips – has seen his profile rise considerably thanks to the Weather Channel and Samsung.

Brooks, who designed our 20th anniversary issue cover, created a series of art pieces for the Weather Channel’s new app, which is available exclusively for Samsung phone users.

Brooks said the Weather Channel wanted to incorporate street folk art in a “new and fun way.” As you’ll see below, the results are whimsical, funny and unlike any weather app we’ve ever seen.
