The Metamorphosis, Robot Style

Yesterday, I had an entire day free to myself, to work on art and start busting out some pieces and really get going on my show, which by the way, I am waiting on confirmation but I believe that I will be featured on the small wall at the Hive Gallery one month next year as well.

But anyhow, that was a complete aside. I was sitting around yesterday trying to be creative, which is the number one way in all of the world to not be creative, and thought to myself, maybe it is snowing in the notch. Ha. It's snowing in the notch in June. So I picked up my someday brother in law and we drove to Littleton and hashed out ideas. Let me tell you. If you need ideas about robots take the guy who has been reading sci-fi for all of the years that you've lived. Steve is a wealth of robot ideas.

So I came back, belly filled, Thank you Porfido's, and my head full of ideas, thanks Stephen.....

So here's the first round of sketches on my robot horticulturist.....

It was a cool idea, but I knew drawing it out that the composition wasn't quite there, so when I started to do it up on the board I would have to make some adjustments. So I decided to try looking up a little bit and started with this on the board.

And here it is. I think the composition ended up much more interesting than the original. What do you think of the shears hand and the watering hand?

Later.

i dig the shears and the watering can. of course both of these are critical gardening tools, but could also be tools for the destruction of the flora if used in excess. i like the interplay :)
