Back in mid-May, for you completists, I pointed y'all to the quite clever and inspired 'robotsandmonsters.org' concept - fund-raising with an offer for a low-priced original art commission.
To review: Joe Alterio was raising money for the SF AIDS Foundation, and was giving 60% of the price of an original art commission to that cause. The concept was simple: ask for a robot or a monster, pay $50 for a color, 6"x6" original art piece. You suggest three words that are going to characterize your robot or monster, and the artist goes into stream of consciousness and, pop-goes-the-weazel, out comes a drawing. Cruise on over to the web site if you want, he's got a flickr gallery of the ones that have been done. BoingBoing caught this and he was caught in a tsunami of requests, raised about $12K, and had to close the operation down. He's catching up now, and he is intending to turn this into a constant thing, using a group of artists and rotating charitable causes. I kinda like the whole thing.
I asked for 3 drawings with 2 robots each (no one SAID you couldn't have 2 robots on a page... nyuk-nyuk).
I used my adopted Chinese name (Gao Bo Le), which roughly translates a "high-ranking judge of talent," as the foundation of my requests.
So... here they are!
(1) "tall, high-ranking, influential"
(2) "conniosseur, adjudicator, advocate"
(3) "talent, genius, unconventional"
