It's Official!

From now until forever (forever subject to change), Robot-A-Day can be found at

Robot-A-Day Is Moving... Soon"

Disregard any past rumors about Robot-A-Day moving today. It's taking longer than expected to resolve the new domain name. Should be within another day or so. It'll be a much sexier URL than, I promise.

Thank you for your patience. Please understand we are building for the future.

January 16th, 2006 :: "E Is For Emotion"

It seems I wasn't the only one thinking "robots" for this week's Illustration Friday topic, "E Is For". This one is from Louise. Check out more of her work at

January 15th, 2006 :: "Robot And Monster"

I've been busy moving Robot-A-Day over to my own webspace for the last few days. Luckily, Jessica McLeod was swell enough to provide today's robot for us. If you want to see work that out-cutes even my cutest abilites, (and I know you do) check out more of Jessica's work. Tiny Monster

January 14th, 2006 :: "Illustration Friday - E Is For..."

This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "E Is For..." For me today, E was for energy, or moreso the lack of it.

January 13th, 2006 :: "Floppy Disk"

Today's robot is from Ben over at Robot Comix. All on graph paper. Wonderful. Check out more Robot Comix at

January 12th, 2006 :: "BRAINS!"

Just a doodle and some quick Photoshopping.

January 11th, 2006 :: "Illustration Friday - Sea"

This is my first piece for Illustration Friday. I've been meaning to contribute to the site for a long time and I figure that if I need to come up with seven robots per week, I might as well take a free idea for at least one day, right? This week's theme is "Sea".

(The more I look at this, the more I think the squid is totally trying to makeout with the robot. Seriously, look at the placement of its tentacles! One on the back, one on the head. Definite makeout maneuvering.)

January 10th, 2006 :: "Mecha-Koopa"

So I didn't do any robots today. I've been playing a lot of Super Mario World for the SNES, so instead here's a screenshot with some Mecha-Koopas. Still robots, it counts, I win.

January 9th, 2006 :: "The Man In The Mirror"

Self-portrait. I dropped back into a style I haven't used for about a year or so. It's fun to do that every once in a while.

January 8th, 2006 :: "Ink Warsh"

January 7th, 2006 :: "Inspiration"

I wish I was this robot. Instead, I'm suffering from a major creative block lately. Ugh.

January 6th, 2006 :: "Cyborg Stride"

OK, so it's not COMPLETELY a robot, but it still counts.

January 5th, 2006 :: "Gouache Test"

Working with some new gouache I just bought. That, and some ink. I haven't worked with any watercolor-y sort of thing since like junior high.

January 4th, 2006 :: "Untitled"

Just messing around with a different style today. More and more of my robots have had nipples lately. Not sure where that's headed, if anywhere. Didn't mean for it to be in panel form, but it just worked that way. If anyone wants to write a caption for it, email me.

January 3rd, 2006 :: "Bluebell Metal Polish"

I couldn't resist leaving you all with a little more from Shaunna Peterson. Once again, her site is

January 2nd, 2006 :: "Astro Life"

A late entry in my recent guest week; today's post is from Shaunna Peterson. As you can see, her robots are spectacular, but she has a lot of other fantastic work too. Check all of it out at

January 1st, 2006 :: "Brrrrr"

I drew this while sitting at a coffeeshop in Minnesota. Happy New Year everybody!
