A new watercolor – "Why do Robotic Octopuses Cook?"

[16 Feb 2009 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 2,750 views ]

I don’t know about you, but when I want to celebrate something, I cook! In a perfect combination of things both robotic and aquatic, I give you the Chef.

PS: The Anti-Valentines Votes are being tabulated… Stay tuned! And I was Valentine’s guest artist for fave webcomic Sluggy Freelance on Saturday, check it out… Oh, one more thing – if you missed it, check out the auction for the Squidee watercolor – All proceeds go to aid in the Australian bushfire relief effort.

    oh your chef is totally cool and must be able to get things done in no time with that many arms.
