The melancholy automaton


I always quite liked this drawing. I drew it for a friend of mine who wished she was a robot, plaque-mounted a copy, and gave it to her as a Christmas gift in 2002. It’s never seen the light of day since then. . . UNTIL NOW! (Bah bah bahhhh.) It’s interesting to note that reverse-Pinnochio aspirations exist in the real world. Who’d’ve known?

    Really, there are no comments for this yet?! Hilarious concept and execution. The colours are so 1950s — didn’t the Fonz have this poster hanging in his apartment?

      Hey Dave, sorry about the delayed response. . . thanks for the kind words! I like to think that this image would fit in well with the decor at Dandy’s Charbroiler.
