Fantastic Voyage

I am looking forward to getting some good creative critisism on this project. (let me have it) ;)

I am a semi-professional scale modeler. I mostly build and paint japanese science fiction. I've been wanting to branch out into my own builds and designs for a while, but a chance meeting with a toy designer this summer, thrust me into the world of toy designs. 

For my day job, I work in an art musuem for a major university. 

I have recently re-discovered my love for WW1 and WW2 tanks, mostly because some of them feel so rediculous and ugly. This combined with one of my favorite Claus Oldenburg's work is the "lipstick (ascending) on Catapillar Tracks". I've been sketching and pushing Oldnburgs ideas further, but want to take it to the next level. 

My goal is find the comical but jarring juxtoposition between weapons of war and things of beauty, while intoducing sexuality also.
