After a few months we’re back! and we want to show you some of our loved “Robot Propaganda” series, totally inspired in those great WWI and WWII posters, designed to cheer up nations, during the war-time period when countries tried to seed nationalism.
“Robot Propaganda” show an hypothetical war-time period when robot ask for support after they decided to fight against the evil and despotic human nations.
You can support robot army of face the consequences
(And please, don’t forget to left your comments)
“The Guru” is the last digital illustration from the “Well behave robots” series, he is all wisdom and patient, he don’t like to be disturb when he’s meditating, trying to solve universal misteries or when he is trying to reach a higher state of consciousness.
If you want to know: “The Guru” lives happily in a mysterious secret garden, under a tinny mushroom, because he is solar powered, he is also eco-friendly :D.
Based on a pencil sketch, this is a vector-traced character with a photo editing process, ready to be print and be part of this very limited edition canvas print collection.
Comments are welcome!
Meet Raveland, the long time awaited solo-exhibition, started last June 4 with a great party, full of friends, cold drinks, good vibe and excellent comments about the whole artworks.
During June, you can meet Raveland at La Coronilla, a traditional bar located in a beautiful historical building (Morelos st. #666) right in Guadalajara’s Downtown.
We want to share you some photos, there you will find why Monsieur Alex Raveland is sooo happy!
Thank you for all your kind support!
We are not the biggest coffee fans, but somehow we know how much pleasure you can find in a hot cup of coffee, and when you get it in the right moment is just like a heavenly experience, isn’t?
“Soy, venti, vanilla latte, sugar-free (Jolly Coffeesburg)” started from a friend’s request for a lovely cute graphic, in order to place it in a coffee shop, the fact is that the client ever answer, but we really- really wanted to make it real… as a lovely cute kawaii-inspired artwork, as a kind tribute to this delicious beverage! and it is also the first artwork from our new series: “Well behave robots”.
Want some!? take a close look and tell us what do you think about it!
Cheers from Raveland Robotics HQ dear friends!
Illuminated robots are easy to find at Raveland HQ, “Ommmm (sweet ohm)” is a good example of a classic robot with a software disfunction, now this robot wants to reach a higher state of consciousness… in a middle of the jungle!
Believe it or not, after some months and a few mushies this nice relaxed robot reached the Nirvana, and its new friends: a kind tiger, a lovely snake and a loyal monkey are witness of that!
Take a deep breath and repeat after this illuminated robot: OMMMM!
Tlaloc, the Teotihuacan lord of rain (and water), was the inspiration for this new Raveland Robotics version, ready to take part of the fight against the conquerors, this pre-hispanic vector-illustrated robot, that follows simple clean shapes, wants to keep the main Tlaloc’s characteristics easy to identified like the circles around the eyes, blue color over ritual ornaments and some others…
Beware humans!, Robotic Tlaloc 2.0 is ready.
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!!!
In the latest post at Viziomag.com, our friend Andresi chose and share the 40 awesome illustrations, based in the VIZIOMAG group @ flickr.

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!)
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!
