Think Machine

A robot that reads? One of life's many mysteries and the inspiration for my latest illustration. It seemed like such an interesting concept to me. What is he reading and why is he reading? Questions which I don't have any answers to, but I've always loved a good mystery. He started coming alive the more I drew him, taking on an almost detective like persona.The detective personality seemed to match the encrypted background and trench-coat with the pulled up collar.

This was the initial sketch of Think Machine which kicked of my imagination.

Beavis & Butthead

I can't recall just how many times I watched Beavis and Butthead when I was a kid. Their poo, wee, fart humour and couch potato lifestyle always made me laugh. We didn't have MTV or any sort of Foxtel, just the Beavis and Butthead Do America VHS, which was plenty. It's been so many years but still their killer one liners bring the nostalgic laughs. That nostalgia inspired me to see what my childhood heroes would look like with my spin on them.
