about transhumans

Transhumans is more than just a collection of illustrations; it's a glimpse into a world where humans have dared to transcend their biological limitations. These doodles have a bit of me—a reflection of my teenage years in Mexico, where I'd make posters and album covers for my punk band and others in the local scene. Those were my first steps into graphic design, creating bold and powerful images with the simple constraint of one ink on white paper.

The essence of those days has never left me. It's still here, in the raw and brash style of many projects I've touched, like Transhumans. Inspired by 80s sci-fi movies, kawaii art, minimalist Japanese illustrations, and of course, the weird but intriguing concept of transhumanism.

I tend to use bold brush strokes drawn quickly, and imperfect, in stark black and white. Maybe this style is an extension of my personality, or perhaps their imperfection is a testament to my laziness, lol.

Transhumans is a journey back to my roots, a celebration of imperfection, and a tribute to the punk rock spirit that ignited my passion for art and design. It's a reminder that limitations can be transcended, not just in art but in life, and that our imperfections are what make us uniquely beautiful.

Why free and open source?

I deeply believe in the transformative power of sharing and collaboration. By offering these illustrations as open source and under the CC0 license, I'm not just sharing art—I'm inviting you to join its journey. Feel free to download, remix, and use them in any way you see fit. Let's co-create and make the world a bit more beautiful.

Furthermore, by offering this art collection without a price tag, I'm entrusting you with a choice. It's up to you to decide if my identity as an artist remains intertwined with these pieces. When you share, use, or spot them elsewhere, it's your call whether to mention that they're the creations of “Pablo Stanley” or not.

Exploring transhumanism

Transhumanism has always fascinated me. It's a philosophical movement that challenges our understanding of human limitations and our potential to transcend them. It holds the belief that we can evolve beyond our current physical and mental restraints by integrating technology into our very being.

It's about pushing the boundaries of what it means to be human, embracing the fusion of biology and technology, and envisioning a future where we're no longer constrained by our natural form. Imagine a world where aging is a thing of the past, where prosthetics are more advanced than natural limbs, where our minds can be uploaded to computers, and where death itself might be conquered.

This collection is an exploration of that concept, a visual representation of breaking free from constraints and embracing a future filled with possibilities.

About me

Hi, I'm Pablo Stanley. I'm an artist and designer who's passionate about creativity and design. I'm on a mission to inspire others and see that creativity isn't just a talent one is born with; it's a skill and a choice that can be cultivated. My simple (and not so great) doodles are an inspiration for others so they can say “hey, I'm pretty sure I can do this too... even better!”

Transhumans is a manifestation of that belief, a collection that's as much about art as it is about connection and collaboration.

Can't wait to see what you create with Transhumans. Remember, these doodles are yours.


Oh, btw... I have put other work in the public domain in the past, like humaaans, open peeps, open doodles, avataaars, and jellybeings.
