This was a project from earlier in the summer. For the whole month of July all I drew were robots. Child robots. Grown up robots. Robots in parks, in libraries, running around. Who doesn't like drawing robots? Didn't draw any robots riding bikes though.
It was essentially an entire advertorial, cover, inside spread and spots, that arrived with the Sunday LA Times as a separate insert. A resource guide for parents, encouraging children to read.
The idea was to avoid race issues, so robots were the answer. The type on the cover had to be bi-lingual. Janice Gilson, the art director, was great to work with. I snuck in my chicken character from my first kids book on the cover of this book.
