Over the past few years The Bots have inspired more Bots (Bot fans “getting their own Bot on”, as my 18 year old would say). It is fantastic to see the excitement and focus when people put a brain full of creativity on a tiny domino! Here are few of my favorites:
Girl Scouts in Ely MN. make a set for their Winter Festival Art Walk
Bot making with P&G designers in Singapore
From Sandy F. in Vancouver B.C. “I gave my bot to my 5 year old son, (he needs bravery as he is learning to ride a bike) and he loves his bot. In fact, he made me one out of cardboard so I can be brave too. Please don’t sue for patent infringement!”
Hi Love Bot #457 here! my friend Teri took me on a small road trip (it really was an errand trip). I don’t get out much, usual she keeps me on her kitchen window sill or in her dark purse (ps Teri I like the window sill better). But on this special day I got to tag along for some important and sweet/sad duties. First the important stuff…Ikea, to score some Swedish meatballs (I say score because Teri and her family are actually addicted to these and if they run out they start to eat human flesh….live human flesh…so be warned!)
Next I met Bobo, Teri’s other small friend that she has inhumanly glued to her dashboard and is made to listen to AM talk radio while Teri drives around town.
Lastly we got to the sweet/sad stuff (no don’t get confused with Swedish Meatballs, they are sweet/sour). I got to tag a long while Teri remembered her sweet (yeah I over use that word…what of it?) and wonderful pooch Murray. She picked up his ashes in a box that I had to stabilize on the dash while Teri drove through the mist in her eyes (nice work Teri, we made it in one piece, but the damn box is heavy so how about a back rub later?)
We just finished the first 2 Bot panels (out of three ) for the new Emanuel Children’s Hospital here in Portland. The amazing Scott Grice helped create a super cool and easy framing system. There will be 990 Bots total Bots once the piece is completed. Here are some shots of the first 660.
The gift bag organizers at The Emmys just sent me this photo of Jason Isaacs gathering joy from 9 Joy Bots.
Jason is best known for his performance as the villain Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. You can also see him in The Patriot and he plays Michael Caffee in Brotherhood. Thanks for the Love Jason!
I know this sounds likes a paid celebrity endorsement (but it can’t be, because I am not a celebrity) but I LOVE Sharpie oil paint pens. Now Sharpie Loves me too, so much that they wrote a 12 page expose on the Bots!
Each Bot is a hand painted, signed and numbered, one-of-a-kind art object. Bots are
programmed to you give you outrageous compliments, help you be brave, take all of the blame, even clone you so you could get more done. You can carry one around or display thousands on your wall. They are fun and joyful and we want to get as many out into the world as possible.
