looking back to the start of the month now, and another picture from John Lytle Wilson, who we featured on day 2! this time we’ve got a giant robot laying waste to a house across a deserted lake. you can’t get much more festive than that can you?

ok, so as i said in yesterday’s calendar entry, i woke up to find snow everywhere! unfortunately, the sun deigned to shine its rays all over that snow, meaning that by mid afternoon, the hills were back to their normal non-snowy hue and only select sun-shielded pockets near me survived to tell their Winter’s Tale. luckily, shortly after sweeping and gritting the driveway, i managed to make it out with Nigel for a bit of fun in the snow…

it was great! that is, until Nigel got stuck in a snowdrift…

anyway… an excellent time was had by all! apart from Nigel maybe, who took an hour or so to unfreeze 😦 click on the photos for the big versions, as usual! hope you enjoyed day 19, we’re into the final week!

apparently snow has descended on the rest of the country again! i say apparently, because despite the blanket covering the rest of the country, Bristol has yet again been demonstrating its snow repellant powers. at the current time of writing, we have about 2mm of snow lying on the ground, so while i live in hope that i’ll wake in the morning to a scene resembling Narnia, for the moment, i’ll make do by posting up some more snowy robot pics. this one is a goodie!

robot snow watercolour

i’ve turned once again to deviantart, where Xanshabib offers us his robot Kness. beautiful bit of watercolour loveliness. only a week to go guys!

update: oh me of little faith! i’ve just woken up to find snow, glorious snow everywhere! thank you snow gods!

we’re over halfway! you might think that by now i’d be struggling to find cool, funky, stylish, festive robot pics for you. well, you’d be wrong! i’ve got plenty more lined up, including a couple of specially drawn ones that i’ve had/am having drawn for me, along with a guest appearance from a certain Nigel whom you may have heard of… so make sure you keep your eyes peeled, as i reveal them closer to christmas! onto today’s bot, and hold onto your hats, because we’ve got a giant robot santa come to tear us apart! luckily, i think the real santa may have something to say about it, as he makes an appearance later on in the calendar…

enjoy!

Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9, Day 10, Day 11, Day 12.

hello there! day 12 of the robot invasion advent calendar, and this one’s a special one i think. it’s called Christmas Delivery by yet another artist from deviantart called splif…

christmas delivery

the description from the artist goes like this, “Santa Claus sometimes looses one gift or another while riding his sled…” and you can see that a parcel has dropped into the tree and burst open, giving the little girl a few extra christmas presents this year! everything about this picture is fantastic, from the ideas and concept, to the execution and style. it’s just a really really great picture. click the picture for the big version, as per usual.

Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9, Day 10, Day 11.

ps: exciting news by the way, i’ve got a couple of custom robots in the pipeline that i’ve had people draw for me. keep a look out for them coming up sometime before christmas!

still cold… still lonely…

seasons change

another deviantart offering today (yes, yes, i know, i didn’t look particularly far for some of my pictures!) from an artist called neilakoga. the picture’s called season’s change, and it’s a re-imagining of a picture by the artist called i will grow you a new home. it’s a gorgeous piece of artwork, both technically and emotionally. what a great robot.

Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9, Day 10.

snow! finally, snow in Bristol! well… to be more accurate, there’s a bit of snow in some bits of Bristol. for some strange reason, mother nature has decided to sprinkle only selected parts of the city with a smattering of snow, but in commemoration of this joyful day, i’m going to present you with *yet another* picture of a robot in the snow. i promise i’ll put up something a bit more christmassy as the month goes on, but for now, i’m following the lead of the rest of the country in going snow mad. this picture is from deviantart again, an artist called n8package. it’s called New Best Friends. click the picture for the full size version!

new best friends

i didn’t notice him at first, but there’s a little guy just in front of the robot, completely stoked with his new friend! the little bunny rabbit is pretty cute too. hope you like day seven!
