Illustration Friday "Flawed"

"Batteries not included"

This poor Robot would love nothing more than to run outside and feel the sun on his metallic face. But due to a basic design flaw he has to remain plugged into the mains at all times.


My original take for Illustration Friday's theme of "Flawed" was going to be a caricature of Mills (Brad Pitt)from the movie Se7en. The ending is still (for me) one of the most powerful and memorable in film history.
Ultimately it's Mills' flaws and his eventual Wrath that culminate in his own tragic downfall. Despite this I felt it was all a bit too morbid for IF, so he remains as the sketch you see here. The pose is taken from the moment after he discovers what's in the box! On that cheery note...bye bye!
