The Iron Giant Project

The animated film "The Iron Giant" is one of my most favorite movies of all time. It's a must see for, well, pretty much everybody. If you have not seen it I would strongly suggest you fix that right away!

When I caught word of an art show called The Iron Giant Project, dedicated to artwork inspired by the movie, I knew I had to submit a piece. Since I always felt that the Giant should be considered among the greats of pop culture robots, I figured that would be my concept. There was no better way for me to get that point across than to have him interacting with another famous robot. I didn't have as much time to finish as I would have liked, so it's a bit rushed, but this is what I came up with.

They would be good friends, don't you think?

Apparently this was on display at The Labyrinth here in Toronto through the month of November, but I never made my way over there to check it out.
