Robot Sketch Tuesday

Last night I had an over-whelming urge to draw…of course, I started sketching out little robots, just trying to hash out some ideas for my book. What I ended up with was a strange compilation of robots that were eerily reminiscent of early 90’s cartoons..! For some reason, I kept humming the theme song to Rocko’s Modern Life while drawing, too….that may have played a small part…! xD

Here’s some of the cuties I came up with:

Everyone I’ve shown these to so far seems to be a fan of the Catbot… 😐

After I finished the little boom box bot, the page was mostly full. I took a look around the room for some inspiration, when what should my eye land upon…? A book about our wonderful 7th President, Andrew Jackson! (He is a particular favourite of mine, outside of the simply awful stuff he was involved with.) I was inspired to make him in to a bot for my book. Not just any old bot, mind you!! — a POTUSBOT. (My own creation, thank-you-very-much!)

*ehem* (announcer voice) As you are all no doubt aware, in the future world of Amerobotica, we have gone through many a poor POTUSBOT. For some reason they just keep having the *worst* luck!! And poor #7 encountered his end…BY SQUID.

Work in progress shot.

Finished inking. I’d like to colour him, as well, so I’m still going to count this as a work in progress. ;3

What do you guys think? Any robot ideas you’d like to see me sketch?

Wordless Wednesday No. 1

This year I’m starting a fun little feature called #WordlessWednesday. No doubt you’ve seen or heard of something like this by now, but the premise is that you post a photo or picture, no words, that describes your Wednesday. 🙂 Don’t worry, I’ll still do the occasional Whovian Wednesday when I can, & I won’t do a Wordless Wednesday every week, but it’ll be nice on weeks when I’m particularly busy, so the images may even describe my whole week! xD 

This gives me a chance to start utilising my “image” settings for posts, too. I’ll try to post sources when I can, but mostly they’ll be my own images. (Excluding today!)

Now, without further ado…I present to you: My First Wordless Wednesday


Cartoons, Ponies, & Bronies — oh, my!

        Cartoon, Ponies, Bronies — oh, my! Anyone else sort of obsessed with Netflix? I’ve been pouring through my insta-queue lately & trying to digest the far-too-many-titles I’ve got on there. I came across one I had recently added called ‘Bronies’ — I’m a fan of the My Little Ponies: Friendship is Magic…
