Robots are Always angry; Horatio final


I have spent the last few days making uninspired entries for the woot nightmare contest, and finishing up Horatio's self portrait. I quite like it now that it is much more in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. There is an eight color version and a six color version I'm going to show. I think the extra colors improve the design, but I understand the limitations of screen printed design, so I'll have to live with it. Now I have to decide what to do with it...

While I was waiting at karate practice for my son to sharpen his skillz for the black belt test in March, I drew another robot. It occurred to me that whenever I see robot designs, they usually are involved in destruction, and this has to be because of  The Fifth Law of Robotics, as expressed by the famous Daneel, "Robots are Always Angry."

Doh! I forgot to say that I also love Horatio Van Gogh! Tell me where to go vote and I will.

I think Threadless has an 8-colour limit. DBH is even more...
