How will the world end? Asteroid? Ice age? Nuclear war? Granted, while buttering your morning toast, these thoughts probably aren’t front and center.

However, if you are Ron Miller, you take recognizable landmarks, add a global disaster, and see what pops off the canvas. And what does, it truly spectacular.

The former art director for the Albert Einstein Planetarium at the National Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C., has given us a glimpse at what Mt. Rushmore might possibly look like in the event of a super-volcano eruption in Yellowstone National Park.

In the photo above, the Yellowstone super-volcano has erupted, burying much of the western U.S. under heavy ash. Here, a group of scientists brave the conditions to examine Mt. Rushmore. Meanwhile a nuclear winter has settled over earth, lowering temperatures and causing mass die-offs of crops and animals world-wide.

Minneapolis native Ron Miller’s artistic endeavors don’t end in South Dakota. The master of end-of-the-world artistic images has also given us London’s Big Ben in rising sea levels, a swarm of meteors falling in Manhattan, massive earthquake in Tokyo, the Statute of Liberty in the event earth lost it’s orbit and hurled into frozen deep-space.

Of course, it’s entirely possible we may bring about our own destruction through nuclear bombs. These terrifying images are played out in Ron’s work. Take a look at the slideshow as presented by the Huffington Post, and pray we see these scenarios play out only in Mr. Miller’s art studio.

His Facebook page, Black Cat Studios, also offers awe-inspiring science fiction art work.
