This week’s theme for Illustration Friday is “Linked”. I brought out the canvas and acrylics for a little work on this theme. I worked on 3 new works. It has been about 2 months since I’ve painted anything. This work is more abstract in thought compared to my past few submissions, but ties into the overall story for my blue robot.
Once upon a time he was the brand new model, the top-of the-line robot that was used by every human. Fast-forward 10 years and he is outdated, starting to rust and searching for a new place in society. Since he is no longer desired as a robot, he tries to find a link with humanity and blend in with them. To start this transformation, he creates a generic heart, inserts it into his chest and hopes to feel a change.
I’m still working on the larger series of these paintings. Hope to have a large amount of them completed during the summer.
