Since I haven't had time to create new stuff, I thought I'd share some old stuff. This one has been sitting on my hard drive for quite some time.

It's an illustration for a magazine article about the history of mobile phones, but unfortunately, the article was never published.

The artistic style happened out of necessity, due to the tight schedule, but I was really please with the final result.


Hope you like it. :)

Nice piece of work! This is a strong, clear image and the breezy style makes the whole thing quite lively.

Hee, hee, I know someone who has one of those gigantic old cells. It still works!

Oh, this message was lost beneath a pile of other messages. Sorry about the late reply. :no:

Thank you very, very much for the great comment! It's always a pleasure to get feedback from you. :)

I have a cellphone collection of my own, though not really an impressive one. I do have one of those bigger ones, but with no charger, I can't really get it to work. :shakefist:

It's always a pleasure to hear from you.:) You're welcome.

I've sort of regressed, cell phone-wise. I lost the slim/sleek sony erikson I had in a cab. Luckily my cell phone company lets people dumb enough to lose their phones have a new model real cheap. My replacement phone, a samsung that looks like a Star Trek communicator holds a charge for over a week. It's shiny, a little bigger and heavier than my former phone, but I can always find it in my purse.:D

Oh, cellphones now aren't built to last more than a year, that's what gets on my nerves.

I used an old Nokia phone (can't really remember the model, though) for four years and it was incredibly tough, and it still works perfectly today.

The one use now, and have for the last year (the Nokia 5300), is already dieing on me, all sorts of pieces are falling off and it crashes constantly.

It's really frustrating! :shakefist:

Frustrating and wasteful! I recently learned that Staples (office supply chain) is accepting computer batteries and a bunch of other stuff for recycling. I have a draw with some techo junk I just couldn't throw away, including an old working cellphone that I plan to bag up and take over there.

I do too! :lol:

I have a drawer with my old cellphones, discman, tape recorder and other stuff right here next to me! They've been there for years and I obviously never use any of them anymore, but I like to keep stuff like this anyway.

I think I may have a collecting bug in me. :P

You could be a collector, but you could just feel bad about adding to the junk in the dump.

Collecting is cool. Maybe you can make a sculpture out of your electronic junk. I collect one thing -- two-cup sized teapots. I never buy them. Each one (old or new) is a gift or hand-me-down from someone special.

I love the fact that you don't buy your teapots! :lol:

As for my collections, I think it's because of my love for graphic design, but I really like (and collect, to an extent) packaging boxes... The ones that come with gadget and similar stuff in them!

I like my iPod packaging as much as the iPod itself. =P
