Product Overview

Kallamity (Luca Zampriolo) creates an imaginary future world dominated by dark undertones
where protagonist robots (Hard Doll Machines a.k.a. H.D.M.s) mass-produced from recycled
metal are needed in a failing society to secure resources for mankind in order to progress
its technology.

Kallamity poses the question, ?As oil and gas are depleted in the future and inhabitants of
Planet Earth continue to grow exponentially, how will a world based on the exploitation of
these two natural resources maintain its current technological growth?? and then he precedes
to present amazing visuals for the answer in the form of ABAKAN 2288.

In this Sci-fi tale, with oil resources tapped out and the ensuing crash of the world
economy, the Weingart family holds a dictatorial monarchy over Earth as a result of their
development of WEIN technology which allows for the fabrication of H.D.M.s as well as travel
to other planets for more natural resources.

ABAKAN 2288 not only focuses on the images for the world that is yet to be but also on the
creation of the Hard Doll Machine mecha designs. Kallamity designs the master patterns that
are cast, assembles and creates machine dolls from these pieces of various sizes; ranging
from a volleyball to the head of a pin. Being a worldwide success as a collectible sculptor
of machine warrior dolls, readers will learn from one of the best in the industry how to
conceptualize, fabricate and finish machine robots.

Kallamity combines mecha designs with the steampunk aesthetic to create the stunning yet
depleted Sci-fi world of ABAKAN that we hope to not have to occupy someday, as visually
captivating as it is!
