About the design

This is for the Matthew Dear contest, "Good to be Alive." I always listen to the contest songs and try to grasp whatever strange images come to mind.
This song sounded like a robot dog walking along the street to me, haha. It fit perfectly with the good to be alive theme, because what robot wouldn't be happy to be alive.
The story is that Milton's only friend, his dog Copernicus, died tragically in a home constructed rocket meant to dock with the International Space Station. Milton figured the best way to mourn the dead was to rebuild them. He constructed Copernicus II: Digital Resurrection. Not only a best friend, but a multi-functional exploration vehicle.
