Re: Mobius Kart



A parody of M.C.Escher's Mobius Strip II design and the anti-gravity tracks of Mario Kart 8. I spent a couple of weeks drawing this due to the technical construction of the karts (I first built a clay maquette to familiarise myself with the shape) and Escher's very precise, unique inking style.

Close-up detail:


See a BIG VERSION here.

Hope you like. Happy Mario Kart 8 day!

A somewhat trompe l'oeil type design, and me playing around with making things glow...

Aaaaaaaaaa. Absolutely mind-blowing, SG. Mind. Blown. It would have been funny to see a blue shell flying around off the strip, but this will still suffice.

Re: Turtles All The Way Down



I collaborated with cu3ik on a new version of an old design.

A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, "What is the tortoise standing on?" "You're very clever, young man, very clever," said the old lady. "But it's tortoises all the way down!"

Re: Mobius Kart
