Huehueteotl as a “well known” deity in the ancient Mesoamerican pre-hispanic cultures (from Mayan to Aztec), is identified as the Aged god… For our new “Illuminated robots” series we chose this deity because aged-deities used to represent wisdom & experience… a vast knowledge that we’re sure must be the “super-power” that follows this ancient deity… and as robot it would be awesome to be a wise mecha!!
Thumbs up to this new illustration!!!
Yes! yes! yes!! Finally our plush collection is growing, based on our “Raveland pals” Facebook application characters (tooned dear friends actually ^_^), Vomvon-Bombon & Alex Raveland prepared the plush translation of each one, and now the first ones are ready to be send!!

The “Meet Raveland” series is complete. The series has 5 illustrations, all based on original pencil sketches, all developed with a mix of digital & analog techniques: vector traces, scanned organic textures, digital image manipulation & pencil sketching.
As part of Raveland Robotics collections, “Meet Raveland” is a selection of robot based fantasy illustrations, all placed in magical and symbolic places: From Earth-evacuation scene and Mars surface to the Underwater Mayan sea, from a magic mushroom field to a Cosmic alignment right in the outer space.
“Meet Raveland” series will be print in a very few LIMITED EDITION posters & postcard collection, all certified. Posters will be numbered & personally signed by Alex Raveland.
(Stay alert! because every “Meet Raveland” artwork will have a related character plush-toy!)

Our dear Facebook friends from Citymonsters (Haifa, Israel) had a wonderful idea: to change the face of the Carmelit subway system @ Haifa, placing new loving “monster-citizens”, because of that reason they asked for support to the whole monsters lovers around the web to submit any great & kind monster designs.
Raveland’s Magic Forest Gang asked us to join their monsters friends and this is the final result: a happy Magic Forest Gang showing their big smiles to all Carmelit users.
Join this great adventure following Citymonsters’ website:

OK… This post should be published earlier!!
Here is the facts: a few weeks ago our dear Facebook-friend “Romain GraphicDesigner” (front man of Vectoriel Club Group!) chose Alex Raveland’s artworks for his famous “Graphiste de la semaine” series, that is a big honor!!
He made a cool selection of Alex’s latest works plus some cool old ones as part of an album that shows to art/design-lovers his fantasy-sci-fi style.
Thank you very much Romain!!
“Graphiste de la semaine 82: Alex Raveland” sounds pretty cool!!

Well my dear friends, finally the most awaited announcement was released by Infectious-Mimobot team, and guess what!? we lost!!
C’mon lets change that long ridiculous faces and lets place a big smile!! the contest was pretty cool, with lots of very good ideas, but to be honest we disagree with some of the selected Top-5 designs.
We feel so happy with our proposals that we decide to keep tracking a nice cool Flash USB-key manufacturer that would let us produce our “Forgotten Heroes” series. ^ _ ^
Here’s the link of the official winners announcement… and once again, the Forgotten Heroes 3D image (3d by Daniel Vanches) that soon or later will be produced!!
Big hug to all from Raveland Robotics team!
