Shaw Neilsen – Robots From My Youth

I am going to be part of a gallery show this Friday from 6 to 10, that features the work of Dave DeVries’ Monster engine. The theme is the interpretation of children’s art and not knowing any kids myself I decided to revisit an often visited theme from my youth – robots – more specifically killer robots.
I’ll be posting a photo of one of my old robots as soon as I can sneak it off of my mothers wall long enough to scan, until then enjoy this Shaw Nielsen Robot circa 2010. Learn more here.

Shaw Nielsen

I am a pretty snazzy artist, illustrator and designer, and my illustration work for both adults and children has appeared in magazines, advertising, posters, social expression and newspapers around the world. My style is fresh and I work quickly. I was educated in San Francisco at the Academy of Art and currently reside in Denver, Colorado with my wonderful friends and family.

My illustration has been honored by the Alliance of Illustrators, the Art Directors Club of Denver, the Denver Egotist and has been featured in Communication Arts. It still makes it on my mother’s fridge from time to time. The fact that I’m snazzy is not news to her.
