This piece is the first collaboration I did with Karl Östlund http://genocidalpenguin.deviantart.com/ even before he asked to contribute to the Theos KE Polemos project and become a part of Vulne Pro studio. Illustration and mecha design, by Karl, colors by me.
It was his unique mecha design aesthetics that drew me to his work right away, reminding me of old school mecha designers like Kobayashi and Yokoyama. This is, of course, the same visual territory I love to inhabit so I had to color one of his designs. From this piece on we have collaborated ever since.

Vulne Pro is a small development studio focusing on creative properties for television, animation, web, and print media. In concert with Vulne Pro’s dedicated blog and Theos KE Polemos tumblr account we’re launching this satellite visual blog of studio related works and just anything cool we see round the infobahn we might like to share or comment on. Different perspectives from the little studio that could, does, and… will.
