Illustration Friday-Invention

Click image for larger view.

Just in time for the holiday baking season...the "Cookie Baker 9000".

This is my entry for Illustration Friday's "invention" topic. Created specifically for this challenge, on Monday.

Drew this in Freehand, colored it in Photoshop. I might try another version that is more painterly.

Feedback welcome.

that's "very nice" if you've seen Borat. if not, its still very nice. i love the transparent areas on the machine where you can see what goes on inside.

haha this invention wouldve been very helpful to me over the weekend. I got that already made dough that you just spoon out and put in the oven, and I tried to make it into shapes with no cookie cutters, just my hands, needless to say only the heart actually came out looking like a heart.
Where was this over the weekend?
Great idea!

I really like your idea! And I don't think you're weird because you don't look at others until you've posted yours...I do the same thing! Okay, we're both weird!
(Actually, once I start looking at all the entries, all time gets sucked into a vortex and before I know it, the day is gone. It's so addictive and fun!)By the way, you were the first person to comment on my very first posting :)

WOW a cookie baker 9000, now thats something I could use. Great illo!

Yeah, the Cookie Baker 9000 is a pretty good machine - but the 8000 series beats it hands down. I had both and the 9000 had constant baking issues, like too much smoke coming out (or too little)... overall the 9000 is okay in it´s own sort of way, but if you´re used to the 8000 durability, the 9000 is a step back for sure. It DOES, however, come in a very good looking red shade, and it is a good deal smaller. So if you live in a very small appartment and have some friends you´d rather impress than serve perfekt cookies too, the 9000 might be what you´ve been looking for.

Nice feel to it – all vintage sci-fi like. I like it flat with that lovely barely there shadow… but curious to see another version if there will be one.

Cool machine Scott. It's probably more realistic than fantasy. Thanks for checking in on my blog the last couple weeks.

This has got to be the cutest invention, not to mention the most scrumptalicious little, yet big invention i've ever seen. The cookies come out in star and gingerman shapes, etc., but the best part, the most wondrous part-the magic button, i've never seen an invention with a magic button.
Love this-a beautiful thing rendered beautifully!

I like buttons, I just think a zipper may be the smarter way to go sometimes, on the other hand, buttons really work good on jeans.
Thanks for your comment.

Your explorations are always great! I love that you try something new with each topic. It shows in your work that you really enjoy challenging yourself. Great work - everytime.

Hmm, a good concept (in need of a patent), but I can already tell I'll be confused by it, just as I am with most cooking devices :(.

It's very aesthetic though, resplendent in reds and greens!
