Only one game in town…

Well, it’s still droids. Working in London is leaving me with precious little time to draw, and as I committed to drawing a droid every day for a year – that’s the one thing I will squeeze in.

Here are three of my favourites so far…

The first couple of drawings are already up, and I’ve included a few more sketches below.
