Robot = Automata Nightingale

The Nightingale's Doppleganger Sings a Song of Clockwork

This is the piece I submitted to the GR2 Robots Benefit show.

It is acrylic and marker on watercolor paper and was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s story The Nightingale (read it online here). A musical duel/duet doesn’t happen in the actual story but I liked the contrast between the drab bird with its lively song and the glittering jeweled one with its mechanical song.

I rather like the tiny fox and octopus.

To see more work from Robots. Also check out #27; my old roommate Jarrett Quon painted a piece he called Bully.
