Information Robot

Robot Artist 2I opened my studio doors back in 1988. It was a tiny office space on the 9th floor of  a very tall highrise. Being a cartoonist mixed in within a world of accountants and lawyers was the ONLY thing I had going for me since “word of  mouth” P.R.  was the only way I could initially achieve any drawing assignments. You see I had  just missed the Yellow Pages phone directory add cut off and this forced me to wait another 6 months before I had the opportunity to  go public with my business phone number.   Gee, how things have changed.  You can literally get your information out to the public in minutes… not months!!!

Artistically speaking,  I find this new technology really neat.  You can create something and within minutes, all your friends, family and even business connections can view your ware.    (Sometimes even if they don’t want to. )   So even though this  information super highway thing sometimes seems like a machine ….or you feel like a robot….  I like it.  Because waiting for a slow internet connection or delayed text is a lot better than waiting 6 months for your phone number to become public.
