  [Ken's CD-making robot on a rampage]

February 11, 2008

In an email message, my boss wrote, "Ken said that if his robot works, he can make cds for a lot less than $1 a piece..." Of course, the first thing that runs through my mind is, "What if Ken's robot ISN'T working?" or more accurately, "What if it's not working the way it should be working?" Now, since this is a question regarding robots, I think it's safe to assume any malfunction implicitly implies that the robot will be rampaging through town, destroying all in its path, leaving a trail of smoldering ruins in its wake. Why would a seemingly innocent CD-making robot grow to almost 10 meters tall, and rampage through town using its new-found laser heat-vision rays? Well, I'd be hard pressed to speculate here, but I'd think it must have something to do with the Evil Chip.

And while the two foreground characters are supposed to represent me and my boss, they don't necessarily look a thing like us. I just wanted her character to be unfazed by it all, after all, it just means Ken's robot isn't working...just yet. Oh, and that's a tanker truck that it set on fire with its "laser" in the background.

This also was an experiment. I scanned the image at 1200dpi instead of 300 and then shrunk it back to the normal size in Photoshop. I think it does look sharper. Oh, and remember to click on the image to see it on a pure white background...looks much better and easier to read the words.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
