Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator known for his highly-rendered, hyperreal portrayals of sexy robot women. We've featured his work several times before but you can never have too many sexy robots! Sorayama drew his first robot in 1978, then went on to create an entire series of these strange, chrome-slicked translations of classic pinup figures. His virtuoso handling of pose, anatomy, surfaces and textures makes these illustrations outrageously believable and absurd. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who could deny the absolute appeal of these provocative robo-ladies, not to mention the original Robot Unicorn.
