189 (photoshop jokes that turned into better jokes...
This is a weird one. The original image is from this NYT article that Mo sent to me this morning. Then, while hanging out on the couch with Alex and lookin’ at the internet, the browser tab with the aforementioned article appeared, and we got into a fake argument about whether or not the robot was evil. Literally five minutes later I had rested my case (this is what lawyers do). My case...
Just sort of an ordinary thing happening today.
187 (Heroic Daydreaming)
I had a lot of fun making this, and I think it turned out nicely. If you’d like a closer look at the comic our friend is reading, you can click here, but keep in mind that it was designed to be shrunk down and ignored, meaning that I didn’t work very hard on it. Maybe we’ll see more of HEROBOT later, though.
186 (The Daily Robot Presents: Lostbots Vol. 4)
UGH, look at this asshole. Despite being a highly advanced medic robot it was not given a vocal processing unit, so it can only communicate through a terrible high pitched whine that it tries to form into words. Programmed to “fix problems,” it usually only succeeds in making everyone hate it because it sucks so much. For my money, if you need a robot to do a surgery on you, call...
185 (Ray-Gun Stickup)
If this looks familiar it’s because it’s based on one of the robots from the Guest Week Announcement that you should have already read. Have you begun working on your Guest Robot yet?
Attention! Guest Week!
Hello sentient readers (biological and mechanical), I need your help. In a little less than a month from now I will be going on what I expect and hope to be a super fun vacation. For an entire week I will be away from items that make my half of this website possible: my scanner, my desk, and my hours of free time. On a related note, I’ve always wanted to do a Guest Week here, the way...
184 (More Dark Shapes that Evoke Robots)
I’m not about to pretend that this doesn’t look like something that hangs in the den of a terribly tacky person’s house, a house that doesn’t have a well thought-out color scheme or any walls that aren’t smoke damaged. I am sorry.
183 (The Party's Robot)
Clearly I did not make this. I did not even find it on my own, which is a real shame. Fortunately it was brought to my attention by a Friend of the Library. This is an illustration from a late-70’s book for children entitled Your Name? Robot. Naturally, it’s from the U.S.S.R. More images from the book can be seen here.
182 (Classic Robots of Cinema)
I apologize if this seems hurried, but it’s late, and this idea just occurred to me as I was walking home half an hour ago. Also please re-visit yesterday’s robot - I realized this morning that I uploaded an unfinished draft originally, though maybe you won’t notice the difference as much as I do, since you did not spend hours staring at it to begin with. Anyway, behold:...
181 (Sunset over Satellite Dishes)
This took forever, so you have to like it. That’s fair, right?
180 (Another Robot you can find in my Apartment)
Remember how I used to do this all the time? No? Here’s how it worked: I would - usually as a result of laziness - just take a picture of any old robot I had lying around. Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve showcased robots from my humble collection, and I spent a good 4 hours of today working on a piece that will appear tomorrow (and I’m extremely proud of it, so come...
179 (The Daily Robot Presents: Lostbots Vol 3.)
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for another Lostbot. This week’s installment is HurleyTron2342. Also, I guess by turning his hair into a solid form on his head I may have accidentally crowned him a pharaoh. Oh well, right duuudes?? Click here for the other Lostbots
this one is fat! happy valentine’s day, I am busy being in a movie theater.
