HOMO FERRATUS - by makadi3000

I'm a designer currently living and working in Zurich, right in the middle of Europe. This blog is about my original toy work and hobby interests. I dedicate it to Japanese artist Kow Yokoyama, creator of the Maschinen Krieger universe, which has always been a teacher and source of inspiration to me, as he is for many contemporary concept artists and illustrators of the 21st century.

Thanks for looking! - Adi D'Agostino aka makadi3000

1-HOUR-PROJECT (The Award)

Well, I hope I'm not going to scare anybody with this. Actually it's supposed to attract more contest participant ;)

Anyway, I think that every contest needs its own award, and so I tried to do something award-ish over the weekend. It's not meant too serious, but I wanted to keep it expressive and within the artistic attitude of the sculpture.

As I'm definitely not a sculptor I just used a "Thinker" souvenir as main donor kit. The award shows the futuristic evolution of a human being becoming a machine! In a word ... a homo-ferratus. Mwuahahahaha!

Hi Adi
Count me in on the 1 hour build ok?
I've also just announced it over on the SFMUK site, where there's a few MAK fans, so hopefully you'll see some entries from there too:
