Please Note: Captain Quasar's fine Jupiter sketch was removed from the August 2019 Contest because of the contest rule that prevents a winner of the previous month from being in the finals for the current month. He can however enter next month (September 2019).

 

 

Also note: Voting ends September 15, 2019 just before midnight  Eastern Daylight Savings Time
