Like many automata makers, Archer is adept at combining humor with mechanics. He says on his site, "One of the rewards for me as an artist, is the chuckle someone has as they look into one of the little scenarios I have created!"
But, look a little closer and you will find some substantial themes in his work. He enjoys approaching social issues though humor.
I've had the pleasure of seeing some of his work first-hand, and he really has a wonderful, colorful style with great attention to detail.
