Illustrations By Jeff Soto

In 2002, Jeff Soto graduated with Distinction from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

There is a strong environmental message in his illustrations. An abstract fusion and representation of the natural and mechanical which may more broadly symbolize human influence on nature. They seem to illustrate that the machines have come from the natural and are in turn influencing the environment. But then often poets are surprised at what people see in their work – perhaps the subconscious coming out or a bit of luck – Which ever way Great Style Great Message.

What is DALEK?

A Dalek is a member of a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants from the science fiction television series Doctor Who. Daleks are grotesque mutated organisms from the planet Skaro, integrated within a tank-like mechanical casing. The resulting creatures are a powerful bent on universal conquest and domination, utterly without pity, compassion or remorse (as all of their emotions were removed except hate).

Do you think James Marshall had this in mind for his nik or just chance?
