A design inspired by the Isaac Asimov short story Robbie which is available in the I, Robot anthology. (Nothing to do with Will Smith)
The story is of a young girl Gloria Weston and her playmate/nursemaid/protector Robbie, who happens to be a big freakin’ robot.
Unfortunately for the two, Gloria’s mother listens to too much gossip, suffers from technophobia and develops a Frankenstein complex and separates the two. How it ends you’ll have to read the book… or at least look at the wiki entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robbie_(short_story)
The scene pictured is not from the book, but what I imagined part of their life to be like, representing the feeling when the pair are together.
Sketchy style deliberately chosen for it’s childrens’ story book like appearance, which I thought suited the subject.
