Robot Music

In this pencil on found paper drawing, three robotic figures amble across the page, their images are reflected in a mirrored surface below while energetic dashes punctuate the air around them. This piece was created while listening to Mike TV from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory soundtrack. The marks were all made to the beat of the music. The artist drew until the rhythm was too much, danced for a minute or two then came back to the drawing before surrendering to the music several more times. Grant calls this technique "drawing a song".

I also enjoy the origami style bird adorning the upper right corner of the piece. It really embodies the free spirited joy involved in the creation of the work. ;) Also, the robots are just too dang cute!
