yoshimi battles the pink robots

thanks to our drawergeeks topic this week, robots, i had an excuse to illustrate one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands- the flaming lips.


i’m really excited because jen and i have been waiting years for the flaming lips to bring their awesomeness down here to florida and they are finally going to be here in april. yup. we already have tickets. :)

    Great image!

    I saw the Lips open and back Beck on his Sea Change tour, and it is probably my favorite concert ever. Prepare yourself for greatness!

    This is great. I always really like your inking, it’s very confident. There is a weird version of this song on one of the friends DVD’s with the name Phoebe in it instead. So confused!

    Hope you guys have fun at the concert :)
