About

Sketchbot is the work of Animation Director and Character Designer Steve Talkowski.

The term Sketchbot was derived from combining two of my favourite passions: Drawing and Robots!

I launched the website in 2008 as a way to showcase my personal work and to document the making of Sketchbot, my first foray into the designer toy realm.
