This sketch was done for Janelle Monae's metropolis album, which for those unfamiliar is a concept album that features Miss Monae as an android named Cindi Mayweather. The year is 2719, and Cindi is on the run because she fell in love with a human, and this is against the rules. This is an early ideation for droid control marshalls... safe, expected, and ultimately rejected. The concept was abandoned for a while but will need overhauling for the associated online game, 2719. I will be reimagining them as creepy kids inspired by Mark Ryden's Little Boy Blue.
