Robotti Vanhemmat (yet another Finglish birthday card)



suunitelma - plan/blueprint
robotti vanhemmat - robot parents
kauko-ohjain - remote control
liikuta - move
taskuraha - pocket money

A finglish birthday card for the son of friends in Finland. I've seen one or two artists on flickr using a limited palette to great effect so I wanted to try it out. At first I was just going with the blue on the blueprint, the yellow ochre of the hand, and purple and orange on the robots but it wasn't working so I added the green. I wasn't sure while I was doing it - in fact I didn't like it - but now it's done I'm relatively happy with it although it's not at all what I had in mind at the start.
