Shortly after completing the most recent challenge this past October he decided he wasn’t going to wait a whole year before diving into another, Hence “MARCH of ROBOTS!” was born. 31 days, 31 new robot drawings. The goal is a new robot illustration each day for 31 days and to up the level of awesome, Dacosta is also creating a artbook of the same name and running a Kickstarter campaign. While the Instagram challenge will run for the entire month for 31 days, the Kickstarter will run a little longer from March 1 to April 14 midnight EST.
