I’ve been thinking about the cupcake robot from those comics I drew a few years back, and I think I’m finally wrapping my head around why he makes so much sense to me.
It’s retrospectively so obvious… the cupcake robot doesn’t talk. But he bakes for you. Because he loves you.
And that’s one of the ongoing themes of my cookbook memoir COOKING WILL BREAK YOUR HEART. So often, we’re sending messages when we cook for others. Silent messages of care and love.
So I’m getting a better fix on the role the cupcake robot will play in the book. And I’m having a blast drawing him. So I’ve added a new reward for these last few days of the COOKING WILL BREAK YOUR HEART Kickstarter campaign!
Now you can get an original drawing by yours truly of the cupcake robot for your very own! Check out the rewards list at COOKING WILL BREAK YOUR HEART and back today if you’re intrigued!
By default, the cupcake robot will be holding a cupcake in these drawings. But I’ll offer a short list of alternate comfort foods that backers can choose from. Like maybe a fried chicken leg, or a nice, steamy bowl of soup!
Thanks so much, and big hearts, as always.
