melvin the magical mixed media machine

you must take the time to watch this amazing video of melvin the magical mixed media machine (or just melvin the machine), which is best described as “…a rube goldberg machine with a twist. besides doing what rube goldbergs do best – performing a simple task as inefficiently as possible, often in the form of a chain reaction – melvin has an identity. actually, the only purpose of this machine is promoting its own identity….”

trust me, it will make you smile!

more robots…

i came across the work of californian conceptual artist, goro fujita, and was immediately enchanted by his melancholy robot images…

vintage robotica

i love drawing robots…so much!  thus i had to post my latest inspiration for my tin-can heroes : these mini retro-robotica prints by sabor design studio on etsy.  there is even a series called the “mechanical menagerie”!

ode to liberated bots

a couple of years go, my best friend sent me a set of tiny prints from the uk and thus introduced me to one of my favourite illustators, tom gauld.  i have mentioned him before but i couldn’t resist sharing one of the prints i have with you…

does not compute…
