Fly Bot, Fight Bot, And A Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I had a quiet, sit-down family dinner today, and it was really enjoyable. It will be the last Thanksgiving dinner in this house as we are moving to a new place at the end of the month. I have some feelings of sadness as I consider that. I have lived in this house my whole life since I was one!

My favourite part of the dinner was when we went around and said what we were most thankful for this year. I thought that was really special.For me, one of the things I'm really thankful for is the extra time I've had the past couple months to rethink my life, and focus on my art. I know that I have to find a new job soon, but it's been great to blog, draw, dream, and imagine a better future. There's a lot of work to be done in moving, schooling, and job hunting, but I feel more relaxed now than I've been in while.

Here's a peek at some of the new Bots I've been working on.
This is Fly Bot. Fly Bot has only one wish - to fly. He was born with wing-like hands and feet, but he is as heavy as lead in composition. He likes to stomp about the house and leap off shelves, leaving big dents where he lands. Usually, that's just the bed, so both surface and Fly Bot are okay.
This is Fight Bot. Fight Bot really likes to pick a fight. He'll challenge anyone, anytime, anywhere and he'll probably win. However, he doesn't want to give his awesome skills away, so he just play fights now - mostly with Kid Bot. But, just to be clear, he has a spin kick that can rock your world and literally knock your socks off.
Here are Kid Bot and Fight Bot goofing off in my room. Fight Bot's ready to show Kid Bot some smooth moves, but Kid Bot has some tricks of his own to show off. Hie yaaaaah!

Have a happy Thanksgiving. May it be a memorable one.
