So inspired by
and countless other artists before him I'm attempting to try and do a piece of art every day of the new year. Yeah, I am about a month late but no time like the present to puch present in the throat and make it go back in time. Ian is doing 365 days of Star Wars, another guy is doing Lord of the Rings, and a possible third
may be doing He-Man. I couldn't decide on just one series to do that many pieces in. I tossed around the idea of TMNT and also actually Transformers and almost settled on Star Trek. Star Trek would have been a good balance to Star Wars. Both were friends at camp their first year, and then next year they got pretty popular at camp but then one started trying to be all... nah, not gonna bother digging into the new SW movies with some even lamer analogy.
Anyhoo, I decided against Star Trek because I really only like Next Generation. Sure Voyager and Enterprise were fun here and there but if I was going to devote a whole year to something it had to be something I though was completely cool. I decided against Ninja Turtles because frankly I'm not as well versed in it as I would like to be. I know the cartoon, original toys, and some of the early comics and that's about it. Still may pump out some TMNT art though.
So short story even shorter... I decided on 365 days of cyborgs. Not robots, androinds, or tin men (although the original tinman from OZ was a cyborg I think) just cyborgs. I don't think I have encountered a cyborg story I haven't liked on some level. As soon as cybernetics become cheap and not horribly disfiguring I'm getting myself a new laser jaw.
So to start off the year here is Geordie LaForge
Not the first person to come to mind when somebody thinks of a cyborg, but he is. If you have any suggestions of must see cyborgs let me know because I'm sure by the time I get to 150 I'm gonna have to start thinking harder. This isn't going to be the only thing I'm doing this year as far as art goes, I'm mainly hoping this just makes be a better more devote artist. And well it has always been something I've wanted to try but for some reason I never thought of trying to do a theme.
Well whatever, enjoy internet.
