Illustration Friday: Robot


Don't know where the heck this idea came from (somewhere out in left field?), but it sprang to mind almost immediately upon reading the topic, and it wouldn't shake loose til I put it down on paper... and then into Photoshop to finish. Peace to all, humanoid and android alike.

Really, really funny!! I must admit I'm tossing the movie poster idea around myself...but I'm sure it won't be this clever!

'Gone With The Wingnut'! This is seriously funny and well executed in a classic style. I like your left field amd your right field. Tarzan made his robot in a field quite quickly too.

Another winner. I was first struck by the blue coloring. I don't think I've seen any of your illo's use this scheme. I always look forward to seeing what you've done. Wonderful idea. Great execution. Especially liek the 'review' by Popular Science.
