The Warped Digital World of Jordan Speer

Welcome to the warped digital world of Jordan Speer. His illustrations create a surreal environment full of robots and strange machinery with a distinctly humanistic twist… mostly, everything from drum sets to rockets and drilling machines come to life and grows gigantic eyes. It’s as if we have traveled to some alternate universe or distant future where technology is alive and aware of its environment.

Further lending to its unique appearance, Speer’s perfectionistic work is full of burnt orange and blue details which emphasize his unusual use of three-dimensional form. In this sense, the images are almost sculptural in their execution, drawing us in to the unusual juxtapositions and combinations of subject matter, which nonetheless make sense in some dreamlike way.

Benjamin Starr

Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea. When not impressing people with his humbling humility, he can be found freelance writing, finding shiny objects on the internet, enjoying the company of much-appreciated friends and living out his nomadic nature. He is Managing Editor of Visual News. Follow his movements on Twitter:

    I love these, it’s like Speer never decided to stop doing the typical elementary-school-boy obsessions, but these are totally sophisticated, and I think a little more friendly than the scenes that Ian-from-Math-class used to draw.
