2007 Triple J, Pixel Freaks   Hungry for new music  
 

I just finished my third load of washing and was loading it into a dryer when it hit me... maybe a music deprived Laundry monster could be a pretty scary premise around closing time.

Originally I imagined an organic, squid like monster but after playing with a few designs which reminded me of creatures from the Star Wars "Cantina" bar, I decided to explore a more mechanical alternative.

In designing the Laundry monster I researched "bear traps" which visually and mechanically resemble sharks jaws. The original monster was designed to have laundry clothing wrapped around its tentacles for camouflage while moving inside the dryer.
