Experyment Science Center asked us to design a poster for their winter break program for kids. The theme was ecology and it included such activities as various games, recycling workshop and building an eco Goldberg machine. we mostly remember these kinds of machines from childhood cartoons and I think there was a game once which I found quite difficult (and fairly tedious after a while; I’ve got the name on the tip of my tongue but can’t quite remember it). But this is actually a great subject matter for an illustration, more challenging than usually because you have to come up with a series of events that would at least look like a working machine. We also wanted the machine’s effect to seem ecological and that’s how we finally arrived at the diagram for the poster.
Now, we’re (clearly) no engineers but we hope the sequence of events is clear and so is the welcome outcome.
Speaking of welcome developments, this is another week of free shipping on Society6 if you click this link so if you’re in a mood for our Friends or Iconic Painters stuff, this is a good chance to get it and save some money.
