“The Locodonta represents the daredevil in all of us; that sense of invulnerability and disregard for consequences which give us such thrills at the time, even if the memories haunt us long afterwards.
I was inspired by the adolescent feeling that nothing can harm you; the adrenaline rush from crippling bike stunts and jumping off cliffs into the sea, not realising the danger until years later.
Without wanting to indulge in nostalgia, but acknowledging the designs and characters that surrounded me as a kid – using the visual shorthand from the icons and costumes of stunt performers, circus acrobats and obscure aliens from sci-fi serials to show these guys as incarnations of fearlessness.” – JPK
Never run out of nerve.
