We just finished these up. These are based on colorations from Dr. Suess for a collector. They stand about 3” tall and have lots of glow in the dark.

“Andy Warhol works (the foundation estimate there are more than 100,000 of them) accounted for an estimated 17 per cent of the Contemporary auction market in 2010.” (full article here)
100,000 pieces and 17% of the contemporary auction market in 2010! wow. talk about being a prolific artist. is it real or is it warhol? unfortunately, the link about is about some snafu with a board of Warhol scholars that were trying to verify real Warhol works vs. fake Warhol works – nevertheless, 100,000 works in a lifetime is amazing in the scope of creation.
i consider some of my slobot work to be modern takes on Andy’s legacy, like this Star Wars Wampa that i turned into a slobot.

if you read my blog and follow my work – i love 4 things. Robots, color, mid century art and design and the bauhaus. always on the hunt for new inspiration, i came across Harold Krisel, who studied at the New Bauhas and made awesome use of color.

Great quote from the Article in Wired about how a well crafted Ad can shape our memories...
"It’s the difference between a “Save” and the “Save As” function. Our memories are a “Save As”: They are files that get rewritten every time we remember them, which is why the more we remember something, the less accurate the memory becomes."
