robot, dancing

July 20th, 2014

Some things take a lot of work, and some things just fall right there into place. This is of the latter. Just had an idea one morning to do some identity work for my ongoing music project, Dance Robot, Dance. This started out years ago consisting of only computer-based electronic music made with software and has expanded into a sprawling thing that covers all the instruments I know how to play as well as interesting recording techniques and editing processes. I chose my main four tools to use here: electric guitar, accordion, modular synthesizer, and sax.
The result here was created digitally, but I’d like to use it with rubber stamps and screen-printing, for starters.

researching robots

January 8th, 2014

Hey how ya doin? It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Here are some interesting things I found today in “The Modern Home Physician, Illustrated” c.1942, which is a book I bought at a flea market years ago. I’m working on an illustration of robots and this stuff comes in handy. Sometime in the next couple of months I can post the how and why. (If you’ve been here a while, you might actually figure part of it out if you’re super-observant. If you do, drop me an email and you’ll get a prize.)

Awesome awesomeness, for sale!

April 18th, 2010

The Philadelphia Free Library Festival was this past weekend. Eric Wight and I had a little drawing show on Saturday for which I printed up this two-color poster. We didn’t sell out at the festival so I’ve got them up on Etsy now. Get one while they hot.

Mash-up of Awesomeness: the poster it is printed

pick a color

April 13th, 2010

Eric Wight and I are doing a program at the Philadelphia Free LIbrary Festival this weekend and we’re printing a poster for the occasion. However, I’ve not been able to choose a particular color combibation. So with a few days left before I print these, I thought I’d ask some opinions. A caveat is that the nature of screen printing dictates that colors aren’t always 100% predictable, and another is that we might end up making more than one version. Just curious what y’all think.

this robot loves you

February 2nd, 2010

Back last year when I took my screen printing class, I printed this robot with a heart. Remember that? Well, what you might not have known was that at the same time I printed that robot, I printed another, less cardiologically-correct version especially for the seventh-best holiday of the year, Valentine’s Day! This robot has a more traditional Valentiney-style pink heart in place of that anatomical one.
Now, by now I suspect that you’re thinking what I was thinking when I printed. You’re thinking “why, that cutie-pie whom I love and adore and think warm thoughts about absolutely loves robots, and by george this print is certainly a better idea than chocolate.” And if you are thinking that, you’d be wrong. Because chocolate is actually better. But this is a close second and you should get it for him/her anyway.

So go now to the Etsy and place your order. If you order it in time you’ll get it before the 14th. I love you.
