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?
