Domo Arigato

For some reason I got in the habit of drawing on the take-home boxes from restaurants when Megan and I go out to eat.  I am not an artist, nor do I have an urge to draw much, but this is something I’ve really enjoyed doing.  Usually I will ask her what she’d like me to draw, with the stipulation that it be something simple.  It’s normally something like flowers or a wedding dress and the like.  I tend to kid her about how she never wants me draw “manly things” like UFOs or monsters.

On Saturday we went to Puccini’s with her dad and she was away from the table when the waitress brought the box.  So I decided it was high time I drew her a robot:

I really like the look on his face – he’s either happy or crazy, and I suspect he might be a little of both.

Shine on, you crazy robot diamond.

    Robot FAIL – no method of locomotion.

    Kim draws on the to-go box almost everytime we go out – usually it’s a depiction of whatever’s in the box. Once, we had pit ham at a local diner and she drew a pig stuck in a deep hole.

    I think it’s not a portrait of his top half, but that he keeps his wheels in his body when not in use, because who wouldn’t do that, if they could?
