Kickstarter From The Heart: Matt Dixon's Transmissions 2 Is Full Of Contemplative Robots

By Olly MacNamee

With the initial £2000 pledge met within days, Matt Dixon's proposed sequel to his 2013 book, Transmissions, a fun filled collection of Dixon's love for robots, is no longer a proposition but a reality.

Not only is the campaign allowing me to collect a whole host of new robot artwork together as I'd hoped, it's also helping to fund the creation of new art (for the book).

With a long list of clients, including Wizards of the Coasts and Blizzard, Dixon is a modern master of B Movie sci-fi and fantasy art, with a knowing nudge and a wink shared with his audience. Maybe better known for the aforementioned genres, Dixon's lifelong love of robots has seen him once again return to this theme. After all, who doesn't love a robot, after all?
