Just a couple Robot Drawings

Been really trying to find inspiration to draw more lately (and have succeeded somewhat)


I know it's not much, but it's a start... Looking at the work of guys like Willie Real and Jake Parker just really gets my blood moving to draw again, doing whatever i can to glean a little knowledge, and not FORCE myself to practice and draw but to really want to do it again, to be even have the confidence to put pen to paper and not be embarrassed to show someone my sketch book, or my blog.

I think i've just been focusing way too much on how crappy my drawings were and not focusing on JUST FUCKIN DRAWING to improve myself, every once in a while it takes a good measure of "fuck it-ness" for me to just go for it, and do what i can to improve myself.

Either way, more to come, y'all hold me to it!

New Moonbot App "The Numberlys" Released Today!


Today we released the next storybook App from Moonbot studios, THE NUMBERLYS!!!'s Geek Dad says:
Moonbot has gone directly to their film-making roots with this production of The Numberlys. It opens with amazing landscape tracking shots of the Numberly city, a visual and audio spectacular that provides an animated industrialism and uniformity of which Lang would approve. The narrative is cute and whimsical and delivered in an upbeat generic European accent. In the opening of the app, the narrative appears as written text which is read by the narrator in-between these epic scenes of an industrial city, workers marching through dense city landscapes, working in factories, creating numbers – cogs turning, hammers hammering, conveyor belts moving numbers along the production line. The setting is clear.


We all hope that you guys will check out the app, and hope even more that you will enjoy it!
