My dear artist and friend Max-O-Matic was completely involved in a personal project titled LATEX FOR FUN. A book about fancy toys. But not in vinyl, but in latex. His project started with a simple idea: create disposable "designer toys" with pure d.i.y. ethics. He started drawing over balloons what he would like to draw over vinyl toys, but he couldn´t afford. That´s how the Latex for fun project was born... and in a few months 135 designers from over 20 countries participated; Their work reflects various styles, personalities and cultures, but all of it shows how vibrantly creative the collaboration of a spontaneously generated global design network can be. Later on, after the book was published by Die Gestalten Verlag, he planned an exhibition to show the whole project and he asked me for creating an exclusive image for this great event. Here it is. A "good bye" or a "hello". I was not sure.
