Retro Robot

These days, all the robots I see are either high-tech, white, sleek figures that look a little too much like humans for comfort, or big, bulky pieces of metal with numerous things – usually weapons – stuck on them. For this week’s IF theme (Robot, what else?), therefore, I thought I’d design a friendly retro robot. Something that would look more like a first robot. Meet Oktopussy! Your very own butler.

Robot Octopus


Now, he takes some time to get used to your home, but once he is, he’s friendly, helpful, and, above all, obedient. He sometimes doesn’t understand your commands, and he sometimes drops things, and he sometimes trips, breaking your stuff… but otherwise, he’s awesome!

I'm a hopeful illustrator who wishes to change the world through art. I suppose, though, that I'll have to start simple - one sketch at a time.

  1. i like this robot. simple but useful… and he can trip or drop things, which is a good idea because it can make me laugh.

  2. Thanks, I’m glad you like it! I agree, it’s very rare to have a robot that actually makes mistakes – they’re usually too obsessed with trying to revolt and kill us all 🙂
