The Walter robots are out on a stroll (with human supervision of course) to show GG around in beautiful Balboa Park one sunny afternoon. The Spine is having a trip down memory lane by himself; talking about World's Fairs and such while the others are enjoying the local wildlife.

I wanted to place the robots in a familiar and nostalgically important location - Balboa Park in San Diego, California. IRL, this place is where the band started busking
as their robot characters and built the very foundation to the act we see today.
I have discovered that I don't like to rely too much on photo references when making backgrounds. It's much more rewarding to simply use my imagination, and that's why I like the previous group picture better. But I had fun nevertheless with this outdoor scene; figuring out daylight, textures, expressions... and generally messing up their daytrip.
