In today’s world, the truth is losing. It seems that modern homo-sapiens have recently evolved to navigate their lives mostly through their smartphones. Notifications and alerts trigger our waking moments like Pavlov’s bell, all too often forcing us not to focus on the real world around us, while endlessly distracting us to connect and adhere to a world that wants us to disconnect. The current social and ecological malaise encountered around the world could be the start of a solution fueled by healthy, interdisciplinary dialogue, if we can try to captivate some of the disconnected and apathetic to think beyond the hypnotic glare of their palm devices.

His work was reviewed in the press with the memorable headline ‘It’s nicely framed, but is it art?’.

He (like any creative person) found school very difficult and stressful and used art and drawing to escape the torture. James managed to just about get a degree in Illustration despite 2 major mental breakdowns at University. In his 5th and final year of a 3-year illustration degree, James started to draw Nonook The Bipolarbear. At that point, he struggled to separate his emotional state from the bears and had to stop due to becoming too depressed. It was 5 years later, in 2019, that Nanook would be brought out of hibernation. A friend of his from church gave him a card with a joke on it about a Bipolarbear and James knew that it was a sign that Nanook should return. So he started drawing...

Mike has always felt a special affinity towards Space Age Modern and Mid-Century Design. The use of – what was then a new product– plastic and the excitement over space travel and new technologies made this a really interesting creative mix. It was a time of hope and change that seems so exciting. All this got Mike to thinking about his influences as an artist, so he decided to take some of his inspirations and create robots from that time period, using TVs and radios as the heads of the Slobots. There are currently 8 robots in the series – 4 with radio heads and 4 with TV heads. All can be purchased in Mike’s Slobot shop. They come in convenient sizes – 8...
