Its no Clanky
Clanky the Robot was a very important children's book for me. I have a suspicion it was printed in the 60's, which is why you can find neither hide nor hair of it on the internet. Anyway clanky was a robot,(sort of with a paintjob like a schoolboys uniform), and he discovered in himself a talent for designing awesome cars with wild colours, a very beautiful book. It had wild colours, like a Brian Wildsmith Book we had as children.
Like dinosaurs, boys and giant robots go together. So here's a boy and a robot or two. Once again things are a little wonky, but you get that in recreational monday night drawing.
Plus theres no wild colours, so you have to poke yourself in the eye to get that effect.
