The woodsman and the lobsters! I think this was foremost in my mind once both of these characters came into being. I like the clash between folklore and sci-fi, magic and technology, wildness and structure. Also, I like drawing robots and I like drawing lumberjacks, so…. there is that, as well.
A walking engine of glittering metal, striding now across the heather; articulate ropes of steel dangling from it, and the clattering tumult of its passage mingling with the riot of the thunder.-H.G. Wells, War of the Worlds

“Let us explore. There is the white house lying among the trees. It lies down there ever so far beneath us. We shall sink like swimmers just touching the ground with the tips of their toes. We shall sink through the green air of the leaves, Susan.”-Virginia Woolf, The Waves
