Extreme Machines...

Watching a documentary on Extreme Machines inspired this piece. Will Robots one day take over the world? For now i think not...but technology has gone as far as them mimicing our movements and balance. The Honda ASIMO humanoid robot is the most outstanding functional piece of engineering, technology has evolved from 6 Robotic legs to the human equivalent of 2...so on that note, i am not a robot!

I like this idea, and the collage is great, too! I haven`t had the chance to see in real, I`d llove to see how you make your collage works~

and.. I like how you display your moleskine, beautiful!

A strident designer you are. I still most admire your experimental nature. This is so intriguing. As an illustrator who does design by day, I tend to leave the design world behind, leave it for the experts, and head home to draw pictures.

This must be Jacqui's book. Am I right? Jackson's the lucky one. Nice work.

Occam's Razor! Thank you - i love collage! Especially with typography. I'm sure you'll see it soon, i hope.

Thank you marty..i think. I like to think i'm an enthusiastic designer, i never tire of visual communication.

It is Jacqui's book.

I think your artwork is great, and I love your energy. I wish I had half of it. We have diffeerent styles, but our visual interests, I think, are very similar. I am not into full blown narrative. I like the vignette, but I find the most reward in playing with styles and messing about with composition. I think that makes me a designer. Also, we're obsessed with b&w these days.

Thanks Marty - i think there is such a fine line between arts & crafts, especially graphic art and graphic design - but i do like to push away and nibble at those boundaries, especially when it comes to typography - lately i've combined photography with typography - and created through grass cuttings the word KERN.

Really enjoying this project!!
