Meet Space Ace 7 – my entry into the Jouwe custom show at TAG Gallery in LA on October 2, 2010. 

“The Space Ace 7 is a heavy lifting, space travelling slobot. He spends long hours with his space friends building and repairing spaceships. Many hours under ultraviolet radiation have left his metal skin with a slight glow.”

Oh yeah, he has an LED mounted in his head, making his eyes glow bright blue. mikeslobot_spaceace7_04 mikeslobot_spaceace7_05 mikeslobot_spaceace7_06 mikeslobot_spaceace7_07

Mike Slobot’s Robot Art - The Mechanobot Project

mikeslobot_mechanobot_6

Back once again – its Mike Slobot with the Mechanobot, and new, one of a kind slobot sculpture.  This commission was created to accompany a found object motorcycle sculpture.

His story:

“The Mechanobot is a brass tacks, no-nonsense slobot that loves nothing more than working on a motorcycle. Long hours holding a wrench bring him pure delight, and he specializes in detailed reconstruction work. Mechanobot carries around his own supply of grease, oil, and gas on his back, with his trusty ‘combo grease gun’ at his side.” 

Stands about 14” tall, found objects, old and new toys, rubber, glass, paint, etc.  Eye, wires, and hand lights glow in the dark.

Why, yes, he does have his very own skull tattoo reminding him of the horrors of war…mikeslobot_mechanobot_tattoo

Mike Slobot’s Robot Art – Meet the SUPbots

mikeslobot_SUPbots_withSurfboards
Just out of the slobot studio, these are the SUPbots.  they stand about 9” tall (13” or so to the top of the surfboards).  They were created as special commissions for an art collector that is partial to surfing and sea life.  They are created from old and new toys, resin, paint, rubber, and glass. oh yeah, this one has quite a bit of glow in the dark, too… you can commission your own slobot at the slobot web store.
Their story goes like this:  
“The SUPbots are part of an elite team of slobots who travel the oceans of the world on their trusty Stand Up Paddleboards, setting dolphins free from fishermen’s nets and stopping the hunting of seals. They seek peace through education and force (if necessary,) while always being careful not to endanger humans or animals. A unique breed of slobot, the SUPbots are fluent in most dialects of dolphin and seal. They are also capable of speaking with sea animals telepathically.”
