Strike Array is series of papercraft vehicles. They inhabit a dystopian near-future California and are controlled by artificial intelligence.

▲ One of the papercraft ‘nets’. I used a combination of CAD software to design the models and create the unwraps.

▲I got really inspired by low-fi retro-tech graphics. The machines were a perfect canvas for these ‘decals’. This is the graphics pasteboard I created during the project. Not all of the designs made their way onto the models.
