robot loooooove


(wall piece, Robot hugs Godzilla by Gary Rith)
Thursday last week I am walking the dog and begin thinking "I have drawn robots, I wonder if I could make them????" and as you recall, we had a zillion guests, but I have been sneaking around to make them.  This wall piece is first!  I was talking with the visiting cousins about it "you remember the creature features, Saturday afternoon???" and they are like "OH YES" and naturally we start waving our arms around saying "DANGER WILL ROBINSON!".  When we were kids, if we were not out playing, Saturday afternoon TV had a delicious selection of trashy sci-fi and horror movies from the 30s-60s, like Godzilla, of course, and you will also remember the TV show LOST IN SPACE....
GOLDEN!  Totally inspiring! Now I am putting robots on everything this week (not to sound sexist, of course, but this seems like a very BOY thing to do, doesn't it?)
Today I am thinking I will make Godzilla eating a robot.....

Spike and Penny were, well, having the usual nap Thursday, and I saw their logic and .......well.....

Ha ha! And who was holding the camera on that last shot? The Godzilla/Robot maker. And what does that make you?

Ooooh! Godzilla and robots! Robots and Godzilla! How cool is that??!! More?

I'm too old for saturday movies, but when Proge was growing up Gamara was a great favorite. Was that the beginnings of turtles for me? Hmmmm......

With all the technology for tv and computers out there now, it makes me a little nostalgic for the campy tv we all watched as kids. Lost in Space, I Dream of Genie, that totally dreadful dinosaur thing, the early Star Trek....ah....youth.

CUTE robots. Robots can be cute, right?

I used to love that show when I was a kid. Your robot is much cuter.
