The official artist of RoboGames!

Robogames flier

I’m proud to say that I’ve been asked to be the “official artist” of this year’s RoboGames. RoboGames (formerly Robo Olympics) is an annual event consisting of seventy events such as combat, autonomous soccer teams, and robot dancing. The 2009 RoboGames takes place June 12-14 in San Francisco.

The illustration I created (which is posted above) will appear on shirts, posters, and other ephemeral. Many astute observers will note the similarities between this sketch and this famous photo from the 1968 Olympics. Like many of my other illustrations, the RoboGames art was created with cheap watercolors and pen.

Despite the widespread misconception that Robots Don’t Know Anything About Twitter, you can follow @RoboGames on Twitter for up to the minute robot news.

    Riggs Bank has an astonishingly rich history, and at various times, has significantly influenced the history of the United States. To list a few stories involving Riggs:
    Riggs financed the purchase of Alaska Riggs hid millions of dollars for Pinochet, the exiled Chilean dictator, and his family

    Technical Analysis – Technically the chart for GE looks ok. It certainly took a nosedive from the high 30s a year ago and hit a low of about 6 recently. Since then it has rebounded and was at a nice “base” of about 11.xx until today’s break above 11. It appeared as if it would not break 11 for awhile but once it did, it started to build momentum. The P&F chart shows GE hitting 17.5 with today’s breakout however the move today was not significant in volume and can be attributed more to the “buy the rumor sell the news

    The icon in the bottom-left corner brings you back to the neighborhood view, while the icon in the top-left corner launches full screen mode. If you’re curious to see what someone else’s neighborhood looks like (because this is the Internet after all, and reality is in the eye of the beholder), hrsaccount either click “Load [twitter name]’s neighbors” or the carriage return icon beneath the four-way control.
