My fascination with robots began with B-9, the Lost in Space robot. I had a B-9 toy when I was a kid. Then I discovered Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet, who had guest appearances in two episodes of Lost in Space. How does a robot from movie have a guest appearance on a TV show? That does not compute.
These robots are a tribute to B-9 and Robbie and their bulky, somewhat comical, 1950’s sci-fi look.
These portraits are my take on the pop art and art nouveau images of the likes of Andy Worhol, Alphonse Mucha, Roy Lichtenstein etc.
Kandinsky and Miro with a digital perspective.
Although these designs could certainly be included with the kaleidoscopes and mandalas they are a bit different. They are all created from designs that began in Adobe Illustrator and only afterwards were they brought in to Photoshop to edit the and enhance the color. Thus the decision to post them here with the other Digital Illustrations.
I lost the large originals of these two designs quite awhile ago but, I include them here because they are still among my favorite early digital illustrations.
NON-DIGITAL INK ANGELS
Another trip into Pop Art with a touch of Art Nouveau. I draw my angels on watercolor paper then paint them with acrylic inks, it gives them a neon like glow. These designs were the genesis for the digital portraits.
