Well I don't usually say this, but I think this one kind of speaks for itself. I will mention that he can only knit rectangles.

This is the original sketch, before I decided to show him knitting. Please note his more casual stance, lacking the hint of effort and concentration he has in the knitting version. A carefree robot, ready to do some simple clamping.
And this is the inked version before I added the watercolour:Ahh robots. This one is dedicated to Bradley, because he loves robots more than anyone.

p.s. I just noticed he looks a little bit like a Cyberman...that wasn't intentional...too much Dr. Who I guess.

Great! Wonderful colors! Can't sell the scarf as hand made now, secrets out.

I like your knitting "machine". I like the knitting pattern that you see more in the inked version, for I think drawing knitting is pretty difficult.

Oh I used to love Dr. Who! Is that still on? That and the Benny Show, or something. Wow, childhood flashbacks.

Oh my! I love that robot! And my 8-year-old son, J., may rival your Bradley for who loves robots more! I am planning on making him quilts with robots appliqued on them for his bunk bed and want to re-do his room with robots. Do you sell your drawings? I would love to have this one to make a print for his wall because J. also loves to knit!

Thanks Susie! I do sell prints of my artwork in my etsy shop. I make them at home on my printer, if you'd like I can put a custom order in my shop for you.
thanks for the nice comments!
