A Girl And Her Robot Travel Through The West Coast Wastelands Of An Alternate 90s

Just hearing the phrase "a girl and her robot" conjures up images of sci-fi adventure and bonding between human and cybernetic lifeform, and it makes for a great prompt no matter the mode of expression.

Artist Simon Stålenhag created a series of illustrations based on the premise "a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot" that serves as their travelogue as they make their way through an alternate post-apocalyptic 1990s:

The artist and author, who hails from Stockholm, Sweden, bases The Electric State on "a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot," an unlikely pair that travels the West Coast in the aftermath of a massive technological meltdown, which has apparently resulted in brutal warfare between monstrous 'battle drones' and sheepish humans controlled by individual Virtual Reality helmets.

Simon's upcoming release The Electric State will be an artbook like no other- a visual guide that lets the viewer's mind tell the tale behind each fantastically realistic scene, as we wonder when the meltdown began and what 2017 would look like in Stålenhag's State.
