Makerbot!

The posters I did for Makerbot are now up in their shop. You can see a bigger version at that link to.  Which you’ll want to do, because holy detail insanity.
What I thought when I first saw Makerbot.  God they, and Bre, inspire me.

“As soon as I walked into MakerBot, I knew I was seeing The Future. And by this I mean the aesthetic, jet-pack wearing future we had been promised. As I saw the extruders whirl round and round, making my friend’s heads in plastic, it hit me — I had to capture this moment into art. For my collaboration with MakerBot, I re-envisioned Captain Nemo’s submarine, rigged out with dozens of MakerBots, each turning out chess sets, tea sets, and aquatic art objects. It being a ship, there are cats. I bet they know how to use the MakerBot, too.”
