Another robot doll



Here is more of Chris' work. He's too shy to do a blog of his own. I'm actually thinking of setting up one for him as I do think he has a flare for art & needs to showcase his work away from mine. This is a neon tube he found in a box of junk he bought at an auction. He knew it needed to "become" something when he plugged it in & saw the orangish glow from the bulb. Then he got into his pile of extra stuffed he'd bought several years ago when a Radio Shack went out of business. He worked on a wire armature & used clay for the bug's body. I helped him out with the legs & feet. Then he painted it all over. I added the extra twinkle of the glitter paint. He's pretty cute, but in the dark with those glowing orange eyes & antenna....ADORABLE!

adorable and fantastically creative. There is a whole world of people out there creating with old TV tubes etc. I stumbled upon quite a bit recently. And several on etsy sell components.

People want to see this stuff!!!

I am SO glad that Ellen shares some of her friends with me! Your Chris has really got it going on! I am not sure if I like it best in the dark or daylight! He has definately inspired me to get out to my studio and get busy! Keep it up Chris, it's good stuff!
