This piece is something I’ve had lying around for awhile. The other day I was re-working it so that it could be (re) used as the cover to a chapbook (more information on this if/when it becomes available; See Also) and I wound up with this adjusted design, of which I’m very fond. So I decided, you know, why not make a few posters out of it? Maybe even make it a series (more on that later, if ever)? Regardless, if you like you can get one Here at My Etsy for $15.

...With this original painting, the inspiration for that SPECIAL POSTER I’ve been HASSLING EVERYONE about. I hadn’t done any painting in awhile, but I’m happy with how it turned out. Also, it’s for sale at Etsy to any superfans out there.

(Almost) 3 years ago, back on OCTOBER 22ND, 2008 I started up the Daily Robot. Apparently I opened the Etsy store on the same day, but I have no recollection doing this, and also I didn’t sell anything to anyone until like, ever.
Well, here we are. I’m still drawing robots, and more people than ever are looking at them, which I appreciate more than you can probably guess. Additionally, this little art project went from being a hobby to a kind of second job for me, (in the good way).
In honor of the Daily Robot’s third birthday I’ve made this, a big (18”x24”) limited-edition poster that I spent a lot of time on, and that, as so rarely happens, turned out exactly how I imagined it before I started. I hope you like it too. I’m selling them at Etsy, and there will only be 20 of them. Also, each one is going to come with a special one-of-a-kind robot drawing, a little Daily Robot Birthday present to anyone who orders one.
I have a few more anniversarial surprises in store that you’ll hear about over the next couple days, but for right now I’d like to thank anyone reading this for being a part of The Daily Robot!
p.s. sorry I haven't been posting robots for like, the last forever.

Last Thursday I had to attend a conference about integrating media into the undergraduate curriculum and also blahblahblah, wherein a bunch of people in their 40’s and 50’s tried to explain how iMovie 06 is great and kids these days use Macs and how about that youtube? These were the only notes I took.
Also I always write “begin transmission” at the top of any piece of not important, not-legally-binding lined paper.

Back in July I was contacted by a Design Human named Melissa. She'd been hired by Disqus, a Company From the Internet to make their new offices look awesome, and she said she wanted to use a number of my pieces to help do so (along with, I imagine, lots of stuff from people way cooler than I am). Anyway, she asked for a bunch of prints like these (and these, and these), more than any individual had ever purchased from me. I was very excited that 1) someone wanted to buy stuff from me and 2) my stuff would be hanging in an office somewhere - one of those hip-ass offices that Companies on the Internet always have.
Anyway, yesterday Melissa contacted me to let me know that photographs of The Space were available to look at on the internet, so what you see above is actually part of Disqus's office, which I think is pretty fantastic. Click here to see more photos!
Thanks Melissa, thanks Disqus, the office looks awesome!
