Humpty Dumpty Sits on My Monitor
This funny egg is Humpty Dumpty, as you can see. It's quite special this one, because just a few of them were made. Or printed, to be more precise. This 3D printed character is designed by colleague d'illustration Zoltan Koraï. Not only the delicate lines and subtle features of Humpty appeal to me (plus the fact that he smokes), but I'm also very fond the material. The structure feels lime stone like, similar to the skeleton shell of an octopus, like you can find on the beach or in a bird cage -for the budgies to nibble on. Humpty is too cool to be budgie candy. He is now my new monitor guardian.
