How to Build a Robot (With Your Dad) was my first published work as both author and illustrator (for Michael O'Mara Books 2012). The book features 20 'how to' projects with detailed instructional drawings. To tie them together visually, and make it more fun, I introduced Otto & Zippy, father and son cartoon robots and their robot dog, Scooter. There is also a gallery of famous robots from film & television. In total the book features nearly two hundred ink drawings.
