      Hi fellow mech heads - JD here.
      I've been designing crazy mechanical things since 1987.
      A lot of film animatronics, creatures, mechanial props, puppets, puppeteering systems.
      Now I do the same thing but in Contemporary Art.
      You may have seen some of my work in the movie - Jurassic Park or recently in London, at the Hauser & Wirth art gallery called 'Train, Mechanical'.
      I love designing things that move and come to life.


      cheers - JD

      Now that sounds extremely cool :cool:. I'd love to do props and special effects. Any pics of stuff you've done you can share?

      Sure - here's some video of an art piece I worked on for the artist Paul McCarthy.
      Myself and 4 other people built this over a period of about 4 years.
      I designed and built the small pigs and their drive systems, also all the eye mechs on the piece.
      Warning: crazy, provocative imagery. This is currently on display in London at Hauser & Wirth gallery, Saville Row.
