Android Romance

Android Romance by ~WillMcLean on deviantART

This was inspired by a sensationalist article that ran in the Philadelphia Daily News in the 1930s about the contemporary lesbian dating scene, which luridly described lesbians cruising for "synthetic love".

I worked at the paper for a time, and the Art Director had a copy of the article pinned to the wall of her office.

That's the kind of phrase that drills into your brain, screaming for release.

So I had to draw Android Romance, because nobody understands synthetic love better than androids, particularly dieselpunk Art Deco androids.
