Penny Skateboards

these are so colorful that i couldn’t resist a post.  real life, super retro 70s style skateboards in a huge pile of cool color combinations.  there is even a glow in the dark version! check out the full lineup at  apparently these are really strong.  see video below.

i bet if andy warhol were still around he would collect these.


Happy Birthday Roy! Sorry it’s a little late.

Roy Lichtenstein was born on October 27, 1923 (according to wikipedia…)  thanks, Roy, for your contributions to art…

andy warhol = prolific.

“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.

Bauhaus and Bold Colors – its Harold Krisel!

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.

Leo Castelli on Jasper Johns
