Actually it's "Artbot" for that side of my world. I'm pretty excited to be in a magazine that I have read all my life and had always had the silly dream to one day have my artwork appear in its pages. That day has arrived. My images are on pages 59 and 63 of the Feb. '06 issue (with rocket planes on the cover).

They're not too exciting in terms of subject matter, and certainly not very noteworthy to anyone but me (and maybe my wife), but hey, it's a start! I did the work for a graphics house in Vancouver, so unfortunately I didn't get any direct name credit. I'm aiming for a cover next time - with my own name attached! Then I'll be on Easy Street, baby!

It's an article about technology being considered for the re-building of New Orleans and its levees. I did some pop-up flood gates and a floating house. Both concepts are already either completed or being installed in other countries. As with so many things that appear in PS, it's completely feasible, but unlikely to be built in America given our penchant for spending money on disaster clean-up (and sometimes not even that) rather than prevention.
