My original thought in drawing this had to do with the debate about whether computers can be conscious, or experience emotions and what not. So, I wanted to have a couple of robots debating about whether computers can be conscious, not seeming to notice that they are themselves computers. Because of course, I tend to think that humans are computers.
However, I showed this to someone for feedback, and they thought the setting didn't match the topic. They thought the robots should be in easy-chairs with pipes, or something similar, so as to invoke the idea of philosophical discussion. I also seem to recall her saying my female robot was a bimbo.
