Update: Fred Blanchard in the comments has informed me that these are most likely inspired by the work of Roman Cieslewicz. The artist for the first image is Jean-Luc Moreau.
These two images are lucky finds while browsing through the March 1982 issue of Omni Magazine. I’m in love with them.
The article unfortunately provided no credits to the artist, only mentioning that they were student work created at a French institution, part of an assignment for graphic design students to reimagine robots in a unique way. Let me know if have info about the artist!
As usual, super-big versions are available on my Flickr account. I’d like to note that my Flickr account just recently hit 2 million views. Totally rad! I love Flickr.
