Robot w/ Pigtails (Inktober Doodle)

Robot w/ Pigtails (Inktober Doodle). 2016. Pen on paper.

In October 2016, I took a particularly boring class (that I later dropped anyway.) As the weeks piled on, I keep doodling on the same page until you couldn't see the notes I scribbled anymore. Shapes started to form and suddenly it just clicked on my brain that it all sort of looked like a robot with pigtails.

Later, I was interested in seeing how that drawing would fair going through the process of databending sonification. This is the result:

My friend, Andy Shoop, ended up choosing this version for his album art for his chiptune music. Check it out below:
