Robot Comic #11


(newspaper format here.)



This one's dedicated to Anna, who loves her garden and thought it would be cool to see the robot watching a parade of vegetables.

I've been pouring my creativity into a variety of projects lately, and thinking more about the ebb and flow of good ideas. It's always interesting to me to get a peek into the minds and processes of other artists and storytellers, particularly those I admire. I make no secret of the fact that I'm a fan of Joss Whedon, and I really enjoyed reading this Q&A with him (from the SXSW music and film festival in Austin).

Another author/creative person who's process I got to peek into lately is Cory Doctorow, thanks to a little book I found at the library (all hail the new book shelf). It's called The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, Plus..., and it contains an interview and a fascinating look into his views on copyright and Digital Rights Management. I'd recommend this slim volume for anyone even tangentially interested in how information is passed around.

Love the splashes of color and the marching veggies. Who wouldn't feel the urge to join that parade?

Also like the light bulb robot. I imagine him being very small with the light being an LED and him just marching around blinking on and off.

Hey Tim, I just found your comment in the spam folder! I almost never check the spam folder.

Anyway, you imagine the little led robot just like I do.
