Nuthin' But Mech began as a blog back around 2009-10 as a means of having a centralized location for high-quality robot-themed illustrations and designs by entertainment industry professionals. I have been fortunate enough, over the course of 20 years, to have accumulated a robust network of incredibly talented friends and associates who all agreed to join up. At Thom Tenery's suggestion, I ran the idea of a published version by Scott Robertson, founder of the publishing company Design Studio Press, and he agreed to start a limited book series.
After four amazing volumes, all of which feature hand-selected artists and designers, who agreed to produce original content and donate their proceeds to charity, producing these books has been an absolutely gratifying experience.
To purchase each book visit the Design Studio Press website or through Amazon (visit my store for links):
Volume I - "Oblivious"
As the title suggests, this is a worse-case scenario for the submariners.
Volume I - "Ojai"
A fun little bungalow off of the main drag in Ojai, California.
Tools: Pen, Photoshop
Volume I - "Watcher"
The inception of this illustration was a dream I had. For some reason I equated this with the dystopic wasteland usually scene in 1970’s science fiction films. My brain kept insinuating that this was the Australian outback (explains a few things).
Tools: SketchUp, Photoshop
Volume II - "Abstraction"
A more abstract piece. Possibly a close-up of a computer processor? I don’t know. This is one of the few times where I leave it up to interpretation.
Volume III - "Norman"
A self-referential, Rockwell-esque self portrait.
Tools: Mischief, Photoshop
