Robot Art Fair within Art Fair

The weather has become gorgeous in Ann Arbor again, salt in the wounds of the Ann Arbor Art Fair. Depsite the rain and humidity, or possibly in part thanks to it, the Robot Art Fair at 826 Michigan was a wonderful success!  My new line of robots were received warmly, and are now available through 826 Michigan’s shop.

And since I keep talking about robots, and robots, and making more robots, I figure it’s about time I actually post a photo of these guys.  I’ll be taking an army to Maker Faire this weekend, and those sold at the event come on a base inscribed with “Detroit Maker Faire 2010″.

Let me know what you think! I plan to make some larger robots soon, as well as robot ornaments as winter approaches – think tiny robot scarves…

the one…the only… Ploch Man!

One day, a super hero awoke and said, “when there is a hotdog frankfurther, schnitzel, kilbasa, redhot, weenie or weiner in trouble… Ploch Man will heed the call!”

Ploch Man

and so it began.

I’m going to be trying my hand at mold making with Ploch Man.  Who knows?  Maybe he’ll start some sort of strange adventure or something.  I’d love to hear your suggestions!

the Baar Bazaar

Saturday, July 10th, come to the Majestic, have a beer, listen to live bands and take a look around!  Should be a great way to spend next Saturday night, not to mention it’s free!  I’ll be there with strange sculptures and my army of bugs.
