I tried drawing this one yesterday and failed miserably. Until Thursday, I have the luxury of not having to do a doodle every morning. As of Thursday, first grade starts for Andrew and I will be back in the daily doodle saddle. So I attempted it again today and I like the result.
I like that not only can Cecilia (who s supposed to be 5-years-old) build robots, but that she owns her own pygmy elephant. I’m considering writing a series of books around Cecilia, so I need to remember this. Why would I consider this? In my opinion, there aren’t enough books out there targeting girl readers that also contain robots. Speaking as a male engineer, there need to be more women in the field.
As a curious note, this is the first time I’ve used photoshop for hue correction on a doodle. This one came out so blue on the original that it looked totally awful. I really need to consider getting a scanner. Someone want to buy me one?
