Rockem Sockem Robots by Darren Maurer


6" x 8"
This was one of my all time favorite childhood toys. It was fun to paint and brought back some fun memories of knocking each other's block off. I also wanted to use a low vantage point for the painting so it would feel like you were in the crowd watching a real boxing match. This is painting 95 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold

Darren,
Awesome! We like the vantage point, too!
P.S.
Don't tell us you still have these? How come we never get to play with them?

This is great! It's nostalgic yet modern-does it get any better?

I love this toy piece paintings. And I am glad to see the SOLD sign along with them. Nice work.
