Nate the Robot
Nate the Robot is a webcomic about an ordinary robot trying to make it in a human world.
Ok, the art for today’s strip isn’t really what I’d call “old school” in that I still did it completely digital, but it’s old school in that I went back to free-hand drawing. I know it looks a little sloppier, but I really didn’t think the path I was going using the line tools was capturing the right “comic” feel I wanted. There’s no real time advantage either way, it pretty much takes the same amount of time to do the comic no matter what.
So the topic of today’s comic is unions. If you scroll back a few weeks ago to the comic series that was happening before my hiatus (thanks so much guest artists!), you’ll see that Nate had a temp job working for a production facility. Nate has found out the dangers of being too good at his job.
What do you think is in store for Nate next? Send me your guesses on Twitter (@Nate_the_Robot) or on Facebook (facebook.com/natetherobot), I’d love to hear them!
I forgot to apologize for the font being in italics. Something weird is happening with my tablet when I try to install the font I want to use and it’s giving me some headaches. I’ll have it figured out by next week.
