This one is evocative of nanobots swimming toward some microscopic prize… perhaps these are malware infested bugs sent to disable some kind of brain-computer interface.  Or, instead, to provide critical update-instructions when they arrive at the optic gate implant that jacks Neo directly into The Matrix.

Did you download your latest Kung Fu upgrades, Mister Anderson?

From the Artist:  “The topic was female robot.  The piece took about an hour.”

I was thinking “Marilyn Manson enters The Matrix” but that’s just me.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Ramon Acedo must be religiously devoted to his Creator.  Why?  Because he loves creating new creatures.  In fact, his blog features a “Daily Critter” category.

From the Artist:

“The Prets’Ul Bah or, as it is widely known in its Indonesian habitat, the chicken squid, is a strange being lacking forepaws. The facial tentacles make for that absence…”

So does a Chicken-Squid taste more like chicken, or squid?

From the Artist:

“He has many tentacles, and doesn’t like humans or wearing clothes.  His interests are snorglurging and long walks on the beach.”
