Last months Raveland Robotics was under an intense period of work, but we’re back!
Itzamná was designed and traced a couple of month ago, in order to be part of “Meet Raveland” exhibitión, and as part of the “Illuminated Robots” series it is a robot based on the Mayan Upper God and creator Deity, who will emerge from the deep forest of the south of Mexico.
It is a 100% vector design, with a very limited edition canvas prints available.
An special format of the artwork was sent and included in the eZine VECTORES (Following the suggested “mythology” topic) thank you Fernando León for selected and included it.
And for you, our dear friends, thank you for keep following Raveland Robotics’ website!
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!

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!!!

Wanna know the successful formula in the latest Alex Raveland’s artwork?
Here it is:
Rs + Ms + Ffs + (XXL IC) + (^_^ WM) = ^_^ Rs!!!
(Robots + mushrooms + fireflies + oversized ice-cream + a lovely jolly watermelon = HAPPY ROBOT SCENE).
Based on a pencil sketch, “Lunchtime” is a vector illustration that show us an imaginary sweet scene where robots try to find the happiness behind the human’s simple pleasures.
Enjoy it & love it!!
