Final Submission

Vantigogh


A combination of manticore (a mythical creature similar to a chimera) and Van Gogh (as in Vincent Van Gogh).

Pronounced: van-tuh-goh

Vincent Van Gogh was one of the most influential oil painters, and would go on to have a profound impact on abstract art of the 20th century. The substance dripping from CAP 29 looks like oil paint to me, and it kinda looks like an abstract painting.

Illustregis


"illustrious" + "regis" (Latin for "kingly"), and it sounds like "illustration" (although the stress is off)

Pronounced: "ih-LUHS-tray-jis"
IPA: ɪ.ˈlʌs.tɹeɪ.dʒəs

Switched the stress since I keep mentally pronouncing it the other way. :P
