Today marks a full year since the Sketchbot blog went live. The character has come a long way over the past 12 months, evolving from a simple silhouette sketch to a full-fledged, resin cast prototype. I've also acquired a bit of recognition as a fledgling custom artist, having participated in seven custom shows since the beginning of the year, and in the process of completing two more. Next year promises to be an exciting one, with the plan for Sketchbot to become fully realized as a designer vinyl toy accompanied by an art show. I'm working on something small for NY Comic Con in early February, so stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, I've got a couple of freelance gigs that need my immediate attention, as their completion will help greatly in funding the Sketchbot venture.
