Patrick York Ma. (帕特里克 约克 马)2001年创立了Rocket World (火箭世界)。他出生在比利时的首都布鲁塞尔,四岁时移居美国。先后成长在东海岸的森林与城市之间和西海岸的郊外,18岁时一个突然的想法让他加入了军队。在接受射击、爆破以及其他的一些军事训练后,他退伍去了艺术学院学习。 Patrick York Ma相继取得了加州大学圣克鲁斯分校的艺术系文学学士学位和圣何塞州立大学3D艺术专业艺术硕士学位。

偶然进入校园生活,让他每天都能学到新的东西。

Patrick工作和生活在旧金山海湾区。在Patrick的工作室里,他与一群堪称颠覆分子,创造力惊人的团队在一起。Rocket World研发各种各样的产品,他们设计几乎任何一种他们喜欢的东西。他们创造精神的自由度已经被世界公认。Rocket World是以设计师和艺术家为中心的组织,强调创造水平的高度和细节质量的重要性。他们占有全球市场,支持当地社区,责任消费,钦佩和尊重智慧,不足现状,重视自主权利。


Insurgents W.ilderness G.ruppo(叛逆分子野蛮公社,简称IWG)是Rocket World的一个标志性产品。在2000圣诞节年飞往伦敦的航班上Patrick设想了一个草本。IWG是被一群神秘外星人赋予感知能力的动物觉醒后,行成的不安分的地下反动组织。他们拿起武器和那些屠杀剥削他们种族,污染他们栖息地的人类对抗。随着对新生智慧的适应,他们也开始同与敌人一样的诱惑和弱点做斗争。IWG是可爱而极具致命性的。their narrative can be described as Che meets Animal Farm with a dash of pulp science fiction thrown in for good measure.(这一句实在翻不好)

除了Rocket  World之外,Patrick还是T.A.D. Gear,的奠基者,原则设计师,CEO,并且身为动物园养护外联组董事会成员。

Patrick的创作灵感常来源于纸浆科学小说,军事科技,绿色科学,任意的想象工作,传统或现代的动画片中被人性化的角色以及本世纪中叶和现代流行文化。I.W.G作为Rocket World品牌的特色产品,其所有销售额的一部分将被捐献给好几个他所支持的非营利性野生动物保护组织。他最喜欢绿色,常常销声匿迹前往世界偏僻的角落勘探和援助濒危物种。

在尽可能的空余时间里,Patric喜欢修理自己的摩托车,享受Vespas葡萄酒,探索他的家乡旧金山挤进曾经的书店,在野外流浪,吃冰淇淋,闹些平常的恶作剧。他养了一条叫Osa的狗,是库奇与斗牛犬的混血,带有斑纹。Osa经常笑,高兴的时候还能反复用真假嗓音互换唱歌。她喜欢追网球 ,如果可以的话,她会一直追下去。




附原文  http://www.rocketworld.org/about-us.php

Rocket World was founded in 2001 by Patrick York Ma.  He was born in Brussels, Belgium and at the age of 4 moved to the U.S. He grew up in the forests and cities on the East Coast, and then the burbs on the West.  On a whim at 18, he enlisted in the US Army and after shooting and blowing things up and other army stuff, went off to art school. Patrick received his BA in Art at the U.C. Santa Cruz and a MFA in 3D Arts at San Jose State University.   

Currently enrolled in the School of Life, he learns new lessons every day.

Patrick lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the studio, alongside his awesome crew of creative, subversive rebels, the Rocket World Team work on a variety of projects, and design pretty much whatever they feel like.  Rocket World's wide breadth of creations are used and/or collected all over the world.  Rocket World is a designer/artist-centric organization with an emphasis on creating objects and products of only the highest caliber, and in limited quantities where careful control of quality is paramount.  They embrace the global marketplace, support their local communities, responsible consumerism, admire and respect intelligence, are wary of the status quo, and value their autonomy.

One of the featured properties at Rocket World is the I.nsurgents W.ilderness G.ruppo.  Conceived in Patrick's sketch book on a Xmas day flight to London in 2000; the I.W.G. are a feisty and rebellious underground group of self-aware animals who were given sentience by a group of mysterious alien beings.  The I.W.G. have organized and taken up arms to fight against any humans that have killed, exploited their kind and/or polluted their habitats. As the I.W.G. adapt to their new-found intelligence, they often struggle with the same temptations and failings of their enemies. The I.W.G. are cute yet decidedly deadly, and their narrative can be described as Che meets Animal Farm with a dash of pulp science fiction thrown in for good measure.

In addition to Rocket  World, Patrick is also the founder, principle designer, and CEO of T.A.D. Gear, Inc., and is on the Board of Directors at the Zoo Conservation Outreach Group.

Patrick is often inspired by pulp science fiction, millitary technologies, green sciences, other random works of fiction, classic and new animated TV shows featuring anthropomorphic characters, Mid-Century Modern and MOD pop culture. The I.W.G. are featured under his Rocket World label and a portion of all sales are donated to the various non-profit Wildlife Conservation Groups he supports. His favorite color is green and he often disappears to explore remote corners of the world and helps endangered species.

In any available spare time, Patrick enjoys tinkering on his motorcycles and vintage Vespas, exploring his home city of San Francisco, hunting around in used book stores, wandering thru the wilderness, eating ice cream, and inciting general mischief.  His dog's name is Osa.  She is a strange looking corgi and pitbull mutt with stripes.  Osa smiles a lot and yodles when she is happy.  She loves chasing tennis balls and would do so until the end of time, if possible.
