#180 Badge Clippings

Clipped out parts of security badges.

I have work travel coming up the next couple weeks so I will be making some sort of robot each day but may not be able to post them right away. Prepare for more drawings than anything else most likely.

#179 Ornament Bots

Time for an ornament exchange that I participate in. Only 3 people participating in this one (two of which live in the same house - spouse and myself) so I made two ornaments, one for them and one for us.

Ram chip, googly eyes, felt, pipe stem

#177 Fridge Magnet Bot

Going through our giant bag of fridge magnets I figured it would be something good to make an assembled robot out of.

#176 Satellite Coffee Robot

#175 Cyborg Turkey

20 GOTO 10

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the USA. The Cyborg Turkey sends you greetings.

Plastic thing from an power cord, pipe stem, googly eyes, felt and a fuzzy pom-pom with foil. A nod to the Twitter handle of the Robot Chicken crew aka CyborgTurkey.

Gobble Gobble!

#173 Gesundheit!

Now that it is getting colder the nose starts running more and as an indication that I have robots on the brain I seem to sneeze out robots now:

A little clearer with the colors inverted.

#172 N-Gauge Robot

One of the things I brought home after my dad passed away was his N Gauge train set, which has been sitting in a box since probably 1981 or so. The trains still work but I need new track, so for now the track works as an improvised robot.

#171 Mii Bot

Playing around with Wii Party I thought I'd try and make a Wii avatar that was a robot.
Problem is there isn't a good skin color that looks appropriately robotish.

But in one of the minigames he looks at least 'spacey'.

#170 Ceramic Bobber

While shopping at Target this morning I browsed the kid crafts and saw a ceramic frog nodder that looked like it might make a good robot, but behind it on the peg was a robot! Instead of using their paints I used my ceramic paints to do my own.

#167 Beware!

Not all automatons are here to help. Sometimes you have to warn the public.

#165 Googly Eye Bot

Since I have a thing with googly eyes figure I better make a googly eye bot. The fun starts when your bag of googly eyes spills all over the carpet and it's a race between you and the cat to find them all. I may end up finding them later if the cat wins....

#164 Return of Eyes/Mouth

Thanks to my boundless laziness today I bring you a return of the cut-out eyes and mouth. This time on a carpet sweeper.

#163 Bookmark Bot

I was thinking about the funky bookmarks I would get in elementary school in the 70s, they always had something sort-of punny on it to go with the picture.

#162 Etch-a-Bot

I haven't messed with an Etch-a-Sketch in ages, so tried my hand at making a robot. Not the best.

#161 Another Picky Bot

Going out to the in-law's house today so I wanted to get a bot out quickly. Toothpick robot, or maybe a robot Kate Moss? "I'll have a breath mint and a Diet Rite for dinner please!"

Also happy Veterans Day to my fellow veterans. Thank you for your service!

#159 Picky Bot

This is a picky robot. Or a robot pick. Not sure if a robotic guitar pick would help my mediocre strumming but I'd like to try it.

#158 Basketbot

College basketball is back on TV tonight, so my attention is diverted. Here's a quick sketch of what would be a very unfair robot, swatting that shot away.

#157 Keys to the big robot

"Which robot shall you take today, sir"
"I think I'll take the big robot out"

Key tag with robot drawn on it, looks sorta like a dealership tag too.

#156 Abandoned Warehouse Bot

Much like humans have the bogeyman and felines have basement cat robots too have a fear of Abandoned Warehouse Bot or Ol' Scratchdisk. Parental Units warn their newly programmed dependent bots that if they don't behave Ol' Scratchdisk will come take them away to the abandoned warehouse.

#155 Plastic Canvas Bender

Bite my plastic canvas yarn ass!

Bender made with plastic canvas and yarn. 4+ hours of weaving yarn in, now I must go take ibuprofen as my hands are not what they used to be.

Edit to add side angle shot since the original shot doesn't show that he's 3D.

#153 Glass drop bots

Glass pieces with robots painted on the reverse side. I'll add a magnet to it and stick them on my filing cabinet.

#152 The Bot Who Cried Wolf


Um, that's all I have, looked like a schoolboy freaking out too. Floss container and little odds and evens, er, ends.

#151 Skull Bot Anatomy

Here is the spine and eyes of yesterday's bot. I need to reclaim parts so figure I would use this as a chance to show off the 'guts'.
