I really like the way you draw - the crispness, colors and especially the weirdness. The big wheel and the spoonlike head are just awesome!

Great illo, though ;)

teacher as cybersapien--hopefully after I'm long gone (I'd like to keep my job ya know). anyhow, this is very cool--thanks for including the sketches and glimpse into the process.

Love the idea -- but sand/chalkboard font on the chalkboard isn't as convincing as it could/should be. Keep it hand-done like the 20% is. Also, love the wheel rendering instead of legs, which pushes the robotic tune more effectively -- but, but, ...these are not rivets. They are dotted lines, and appear more like a cop-out than a tasteful solution. Give me more-and don't post until I tell you to.

what an unsettling notion!

nice work.

I love it! Maybe because I am a teacher...and, sometimes I feel like a robot because I have to repeat myself over and over and over until my students finally get it! :)

Let's hope not! I'd be out of a job! Great illo, though. I like the line quality.

I prefer working with my hands, rather than allowing the machine to "rule" my creativity and dictate my artistic process. Nice clean illo though!

Congratulations on your purchase of the HowBot 4000! Included with your HowBot 4000 is a world of graphical talent, an odd sense of humor, and, of course, it's very on blog! Huzzah!

Very nice. I love the robotic version of you. The illustration on the chalkboard reminds me of Trogdor the Burninator!

Well I really like everything about your robot. I like the color scheme you chose. I really think the details you put into the work makes a difference too.
