Good Bot/Bad Bot I spent the last few days of April putting up a solo Bot show in a fun little gallery in Vegas called Trifecta Gallery. Here’s a photo journal:
I started with 4 blank walls. Attacking the first one with a giant Bad Bot. All of the Bots painted on the wall are Bad Bots (Bots that transmit bad ideas) The biggest one in the show is Bad Bot #1 “Dog in a Suitcase Bot” (a bad idea for sure!).
From there the walls got blanketed with Bad Bots:
Until the walls were filled with Bad Bots such as: “Salt in the wound Bot”
Warm Ice Cream Bot
Spoiled Fruit Bot
Finally we added individual Bots and Bot Wall Pieces
Good Bot: 48 Joy Bots
Bad Bot: 25 Ghost Bots
Good Bot: 25 Luck Bots
Good Bots: 25 Joy Bots
I then invited viewers to suggest future Good and Bad Bots by writing their ideas directly on the walls:
It was a fun filled 4 days! the show will be up through May at Trifecta.
Every Year here in Portland there is this massive group show called the Big 300 put on by the Peoples Art Gallery Its a big free for all sort of like a Black Friday stampede of art with some great stuff to be found. Its fun to make a few pieces for the cause. These 9 pieces are from a series called Robot Philosophy Series. Here are this year’s batch, you can scramble for them and the other art on Dec. 8th at 2:00 PM-
Robot Philosophy # 3 “Feelings Are Disposable”
Robot Philosophy #4 “Luck Cannot Be Programed”
Robot Philosophy #1 “Loved Stopped Me Right In My Tracks”
Robot Philosophy #2 “Great Ideas Never Die”
Robot Philosophy #5 “People Don’t Listen”
Robot Philosophy #6 “Talk To Think”
Robot Philosophy #7 “You Always Decide”
Robot Philosophy #8 “Inspiration Is Invisible”
Robot Philosophy #9 “Good and Bad Don’t Matter”
There is a very fun, cool, and informative indie mag called Emerging Artist. The creator Jonathan Boys-Hkd just sent me a sneak peek of the cover, and… what the..! The Bots are gracing the front like People Mag’s most handsomest man! The full magazine comes out on July 15th so stay tuned for more on the Bot interview inside!

There is an amazing little gallery down the street from where I live. It is called Tilde.They have done me the honor of exhibiting the Bots. I love how they have them organized! Today they sent these photos and a collection of comments from customers that have recently encountered the Bots.
”Oh! This is the perfect gift for my friend who already has everything.”
“They’re painted on dominos…what a clever idea.”
“I want one!”
“I can’t decide between the Caffeine bot and the Stop Time bot”
“These are so cute! The instructions are great.”
“Who doesn’t need a little talisman?”
Thanks for sharing Tilde!
Next time you are in Vegas you must stop into the tiny, but amazing Trifecta Gallery. They were one of the first galleries to take a chance on the Bots and now the little things are taking over the joint. My Trifecta pals just reported that the Bots come alive at night “We are having so much fun with the Bots, and we also are pretty sure they hold meetings while we are gone for the night.” What are they meeting about?
