Web and Industrial Designer, Matt Kirkland, has a website featuring various personal and professional projects. The projects include his web work, sketches and stuff like that. But what really caught my attention is one of the sections on the site called Stupid Projects. I think these projects are Matt's way of keeping himself occupied.
One of the most pleasantly surprising "stupid projects" is In Vestimentis Ursum – Matt's revelation of the animatronic robots that lie beneath the fur and plush of their respective dolls. The results are surprising, creepy and comedic. It's a great little project, and it actually makes me feel like buying a couple of these things just to skin them and put them on a shelf in my studio.
Here's a look at some of my favorites from his site.
