Here’s a little robot painting I made for my friend, Kevin Maher, his wife, Rebecca Maher, and their two sons, to thank them for donating to my charity fundraiser last year. None of them are robots in real life (as far as I know), but this is what they might look like if they were:
Just look at all that robot love! :)
This is a robot I painted for my Twitter friend @ElizabethPurr. She asked me to include her cockatiel, Bianca, in the painting if possible, so I gave it a shot. I’ve never painted a cockatiel before, so I had to do some Google image searching before I got started. The way it turned out, I think the robot must be very tiny (or this cockatiel is unusually large).
I still have a bunch of paintings to make for people who donated to my charity fundraiser last year, but I’m getting through them one by one.
I made this painting for a friend who donated to my charity fundraiser last year. She’s getting married today so I figured I’d try to paint two robots in love. This painting is about how when you really love someone (and they love you), you don’t have to be touching to feel the love — it’s always present in the space between your bodies.
Both of the robots look a little anxious but I’m glad they’re reaching out for each other, despite the anxiety.
I still owe a few people paintings for donating to the fundraiser I participated in last year. My friend Ken really liked this painting and was sad when he heard that I traded it to the Trading Tortoise, so I made him a painting that was heavily influenced by that other lightning painting.
This robot looks like he’s experiencing a bit of lightning-related anxiety. I hope when the bolt hits him, it feels really good.
I made this a few months ago for my friend Juli. She’s working on a short film (One Past) about a girl whose sister is a ghost and I decided to paint the robot version.
I painted this a while ago for a friend. Just a robot chillin’ out in the sky.
I have a friend who dresses her cat in outfits. The cat is surprisingly cool with it. Most people who donated to my charity fundraiser are getting robot paintings, but I made an exception for this one:
Here’s a little robot painting I made for my writer friend Melissa Walker to thank her for contributing to my fundraiser a few months ago.
I knew she wanted a painting for her daughter’s room, so I tried to make one that was extra colorful and kid-friendly. This robot turned out looking like sort of a troublemaker, though. It has mischievous eyes. (That wasn’t intentional, but sometimes my robots seem to have personalities of their own.)
Here’s a little robot I made for my Twitter friend Kamari Copeland to thank her for donating to my fundraiser.
I love an awful lot of things, including this little robot.
Here’s a little robot painting with a message that seems especially fitting as we step forward into a new year:
Happy New Year, everybody! Here’s to lots of bravery in 2013.
