1226 // Steeven Salvat

•February 15, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Thanks a lot, Ryan Swoverland, for sharing this wonderful project – found on Colossal.

„French artist Steeven Salvat has long been fascinated by the clarity and exactitude found in old biological studies. (…) For this new series titled Mechanical / Biological [Crustacean Study], Salvat imagined intricate clockwork mechanisms that might animate the rigid exteriors of crabs, lobsters, and crayfish. The 10-piece collection was drawn entirely with a 0.13mm Rotring technical drawing pen, the process of which he captured in a video below.“

More about this great project can be found here.

Very powerful depictions from the 1930s by Alfred Clive Gardiner (1891–1960) – the colours and simplified shapes are really nice.

Very interesting airbrushed images by E McKnight Kauffer from 1930 – more via BibliOdyssey.

 “If the next century is tranquil and prosperous, life in 2030 will be adorned by cultured and urbane amenities in excess of the pleasant accompaniments which our contemporary civilisation can exhibit.”
