Robot of the day: January 21

Robot of the Day: Inktober #14

One robot in particular was obsessed with the concept of time. They asked to be called “CRONan.” CRONan kept a workstation populated with all manner of analog clocks— digital timepieces, it seemed, were not suitable. CRONan spent many hours finding, fixing, maintaining and adjusting the collection of clocks.

Robot Of The Day: Inktober #3

“A bonfire tonight, please,” the robots asked. They recalled a story I had told them about my youth and bonfires and jumping through the flames. After a while the fire had gotten a good start and was sending whole galaxies of sparks into the night sky. “Don’t get too close or your seals’ll get roasted,” I warned. They just continued to stare silently at the flames.
