This was my first attempt at bringing the human form into the Argent Park world, and in the course of sketching the design (based on studies of live models), I ended up instead going in a totally new direction in the evolution of the Park. Rather than going for a more realistically human form, I started thinking instead that there might be a third level of "life" in this world of living metal I had created. There is vegetable, animal... why not mechanical? Flora, fauna, and "Fortran", if you like! In a place where what looks like an artificial metal creature is actually alive, why not a race of truly mechanically-oriented life forms? I've labeled these creatures as the "Mecha-archaic", for the blending of the high tech design of pure science with the decorative world of pure art, itself an homage to the turn of the previous century, when science was just starting to fully flower, but no design was complete unless it was aesthetically pleasing as well as useful. Once again, the world of Argent Park takes on a life of it's own- and this time, an actual life form!

--Info on the printing process, plus care & feeding instructions--
This is a limited-edition print, each copy signed & numbered by the artist. It is created from a film negative made directly from the original artwork, then retouched by the artist, and printed by offset lithography on Paloma Matt paper stock. Mounting and matting materials are either low-acid or acid-free. To maintain the quality of this work, do not display it where it will be exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, or to extremes of temperature or humidity. I also recommend that you look at it once it is up on your wall (at least six times a week is considered the minimum), or else it will get sad and lonely, and the tear-stains will make it look less attractive.
