Mike Rivamonte creates really nice robot art sculptures with lots of personality. I envy his childhood of growing up visiting countless antique stores, curio shops and flea markets!

The Smart Grid integrates 21st century technology with the 20th century power grid. So GE can help you manage energy more efficiently than ever before.
Be sure to check this Flash website out. It looks great, works smoothly, and has lots of nice details and touches. Maybe you’ll be encouraged to do more for the environment also.

I’m really digging the work of Jessica-Lynn Fortner. She creates 3D scenes using a variety of materials but mainly polymer clay it seems, and photographs them to create a final illustration.
Jessica lives and works in Toronto, Canada and you can see more of her work on her site at: www.jessicafortner.com

Coca Cola is not the healthiest of drinks and I really need to give it up, but there’s no denying the appeal they garner with their advertising.
I’ve been particularly fond of their Happiness Factory clips, which depict cgi characters in a land that works behind the scenes of a Coca Cola vending machine.
This clip above is a third instalment which shows the effects that a contagious yawn has on the factory.

This complex-looking Lego piece 19 Seconds to Find God, was created by Brian Kescenovitz. Its pretty impressive and the robotic industrial form suits the Lego block format.

Meredith Dittmar is an artist living and playing in Portland, who creates these character sculpture artworks.
They look amazing and intricate but Meredith bestows plenty of meaning behind her creations, expressing deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness .

Keith Thompson creates some awesome sci-fi art. There’s alot to peruse on his site, with sections that include concept art for characters, creatures, vehicles and environments, not to mention robots and the undead.
If that wasn’t enough, most of his work also includes an engrossing back story that adds real depth to the characters. What I particularly like are some of the decorative aspects of the armour and uniforms of his characters, which imply history, adding to the back stories.
