I love Snowmobiles

I like gadgets, machines and vehicles, and it’s definitely a perk of the job having to come up with new ones. There are snowmobiles in the Yeti books, and I’ve spent a bit of time drawing them, trying to design a look especially for my Greebo 2000 robots. I always thought snowmobiles were cool, but I never knew quite how cool until I came across a programme on TV all about people who get paid for doing stunts on them.

They’re mental, for sure, but they’ll be brilliant in chase scenes… Watch this and imagine them being driven by evil robots!

  • Wow, they can really wipe out on those things!

  • I watched an hour-long programme about them, and I swear, 4 times out of 10 they crippled the snowmobiles when they landed.

    I was amazed at their willingness to batter them, especially when they must cost a fortune!

    It did look cool, though.
