Cris Rose x PodgyPanda Ramsay and Podgonauts Collaboration

Cris Rose x PodgyPanda Podgonauts

Ramsay (description by Cris)
Designed to look like a Panda, this was at the specific request of a chain of theme restaurants who wanted all their robots to cook, serve and look like animals while doing it. Outfitted with a splash-guard to stop him getting prawns in the face and a big-ass jetpack, Ramsay was often in the air as each restaurant was a huge bio-dome, complete with trees, plants and running streams. The tables themselves were little open-top pods, hovering around the landscape, allowing diners take in the view while their robot chef cooked down below and jetted up with their orders. Ramsay's programming was simple and he was good at his job...

Wait a minute... where did those orders go? He put them right here...

Podgonauts (description by Podge)
The first batch of Podgonauts are rearing to go! These fine lads of the Panda Exploration Core are equipped with everything they need for their top secret mission. High powered Jetpacks, advanced spacesuits and more courage then you can shake a stick at! What secret mission are they about to embark on? Stay tuned to find out!"

As part of the collaboration, PodgyPanda has been working on some fantastic artworks that will be turned into high quality lithographic prints by! They'll be released shortly after the resin and feature a number of panels that stand alone in their own right, but that together tell more of the story. Prices are very affordable, around the $20-25 mark and will see one released every month.

Once announced, all prints will be available directly from PodgyPanda's store.

As a little extra, here's a couple of sketches!
