Scare Tactics

As many of you know, I've been pretty busy with my day job, so Sketchblog has yet again fallen to the wayside. However, during my travels I've been slowly forcing myself to do at least a little bit of drawing here and there to break up the monotony. I'm slowly chipping away at the post-production work on Broken Robot Girl #2 and #3, which Tamar and I shot a couple months ago, and last night I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finally finish an illustration I started last year at the same time I did Ice World (hence the snow):

(Please, click to enlarge - or better yet, get the wallpaper)

This makes a lovely Wallpaper, and is available as a limited edition print. Here is the original sketch.

In other news, the first Broken Robot Girl got a really surprising/exciting amount of coverage, including a page in Popular Photography (wow!) with an interview with Tamar included. LA Weekly also featured it, and asked me some questions. As soon as I have time to finish them, the next photos in the series will be posted here. Oh, and I believe this is the very first Sketchblog-inspired tattoo (based on Troublemaker). I'm immensely flattered.

Lord only knows when the next update will be (hopefully soon?), but please follow me on Twitter to stay in touch in the meantime.

Very nice. I love it that you always include your original sketch, and sometimes map out the process.

That's cute!

And thanks for including a picture of my tattoo, I'm glad you're flattered! I'm still in total love with it, and very glad I got it.

hey! It would be neat to know more about what inspires you with subject matter - I've noticed a lot of your imagery includes a robotic/cybernetic kind of flavour. Is there a larger story at work? Thanks for sharing your art!

1. This is one of the nicest wallpapers I've had.
2. Staci, that tattoo is excellent. I'm quite jealous. I've been wanting to get a tattoo of Rob's work for a while, maybe an original design, but cost is delaying the idea. One day.

No one at work understands why I am so amused by "the abominable snowman and a tentacle monster antagonizing each other," but it makes me smile every time I see it.
Thanks for the update!

........and here we have a cute representation of... polar bears (most notably), among others (quite invisible), finally... rising against the threat to their existence from the evil, far-reaching tentacles of... global fucking warming! :O [/reeeeeeal art-pro interpretation]

Heh, my fave part is the sickly slime around the white one's tongue. <:)
