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

I AM LEGION - San Francisco 2011

From the official press release:

1AM Gallery and curator, James Brown, are proud to present the first official 3A custom toy art show titled “I Am Legion”. This show gives fans, collectors and art enthusiasts an opportunity to experience the talent within the 3A community and witness how a unique independent toy company, who is always looking forward, can inspire individual artists worldwide.

“I Am Legion” features a mix of artists and collectors from across the globe uniting to share ideas and a common love for toys and art. The exhibit opens on Friday, November 4th from 6:30 to 10:00pm and will run through December 4th.

The primary goal of the show is to introduce 3A toys to the art world in a way that has not yet been attempted and challenge people to look at toys in a different light. In selecting the artists, curator James Brown, chose to invite both unknown artists who are fans of 3A as well as more renowned artists in order to combine both converse dynamics; creating a multifaceted art show with a variety of interpretations that offer contrasting perspectives and aesthetics as applied to the customized toys.
