#Botober was awesome but I couldn’t wait a whole year before diving into another daily sketch challenge. So open those sketchbooks, sharpen those pencils, boot up those digital painter and 3D sculpting tools because 03.01.14 is MARCH of ROBOTS! The goal is a new robot illustration each day for 31 days. And to add to the fun, I’m also doing a KICKSTARTER campaign for an Artbook featuring all my robot drawings from the Instagram challenges and a ton of unpublished illustrations. But wait, there’s more… The book is more than just pretty static pictures. There’s a digital component that takes the experience beyond the printed page. I’m collaborating with some stellar 3D modellers and animators from the film and gaming industries to make this feature awesome. Folks like Glen Southern, Scott Wetterschneider, Noel Rubin, Steve Talkowski aka Sketchbot and Roberto Oliveira. By downloading a free companion app on either Android or iOS, you will be able to view animated 3D models and other elements of select images through your smartphone or tablet cameras.
So spread the word. March 01, 2014 is the day! Check out the Instagram challenge and show your best bots. Then jump over to the Kickstarter and back the project.
The 3 Laws of MoR!
(1) Drawings can be digital or analogue, but it must be drawn by you and it has to be a robot (or depict a robot as the dominant figure in the scene).
(2) #Hashtag drawings with #marchofrobots
(3) Have fun with it. You don’t have to do a drawing everyday, but you are certainly welcome to do so if you want to go all the way. Just set yourself a goal and stick with it.
