Justin combined his love for illustration and drum machines by re-creating his favourite pieces in Illustrator. He’s always been into techno, house and live dj sets, so drawing drum machines came about naturally, as he was never any good at producing music!
He started with the Roland TR-909 and continued drawing different machines including the Technics 1210 and Akai MPC 2000. His friends really liked the artwork and suggested trying to sell them as posters. It was at a similar time Mixmag had seen the work on a Facebook post and got in touch. After the Mixmag article different magazines and blogs around the world were sharing the artwork and writing their own articles.
