Robots!: Draw Your Own Androids, Cyborgs & Battle Bots. This book is light-years from being released but I love the concept. You can’t go wrong when robots are involved. Jay Stephens the mind behind this book gives us a miscellaneousness of mechanical proportions. Jay has the coolest webcomics on the net. See more>>
With an off-beat sense of humor that makes learning fun, Jay Stephens shows kids how to draw a wide range of marvelous mechanical creatures complete with hardwired heads, bionic bodies, and lots of electrical extras. Budding cartoonists will be pleased to meet and illustrate such unique characters as Automa Tom, the cyborg Cyborella, Astralux, and Gokin 9. The design data Stephens wittily lays out include everything from wheels and transforming parts to jets, dials, levers, and weapon systems, all of which children can use to “build” their own creations. Kids get to decide whether their robots will have armor, be able to slide into small spaces, have the ability to shoot projectiles, or anything else their imaginations can dream up!
