In celebration of all things robot, I’m doing a robot drawing each day for 31 days. I started this last year after being inspired by Jake Parker’s ‘Inktober’ and daily doodle type blogs. Since robots are my thing, I decided to throw my hat in the ring as it were and called it ‘Botober’. I had a ton of fun and an awesome response during the month from fellow robot lovers so I thought, why not do it again.
The 3 Laws of BOTOBER.
(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)All drawings should be Hashtaged #botober (You can also include @chocolatesoop in the description if you like)
(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.

“In this third installment of my 2d drawing sessions, I have created a little Anime style tribute to the late Tezuka Osamu . Born in Osaka Prefecture, he is best known as the creator of Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, and Black Jack. He is often credited as the “Godfather of Anime” and is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during his formative animation/cartooning years. His prolific artistic output, pioneering drawing techniques, and innovative redefinitions of animation genres earned him such titles as “the father of manga”, “the god of comics”, and “kamisama of manga”. Hope you like.
This is the 2nd instalment of the Draw Session tutorials. The result of this exploration came out looking like it could be a ultra rare ancient Pokémon. Hope you enjoy.

With the goal of creating process and how-to videos on the regular, I’ve created the first of what I’m calling (for lack of a better title) Draw Session. The videos will basically show the process I go through in sketching out concepts designs.
For the last few months I’ve been working with 3D master Glen Southern to bring load of my character designs to life. This vid is the first of many in the pipe.
After a year hiatus the SPARK Animation events are back and better than ever. I’ve been lucky to have been involved with SPARK for the past few years now as the art director. Here’s a look at the postcard I created for the event. Join us on September 12, as we celebrate the launch of our fantastic film festival.
