If you’ve flipped through a copy of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, then you’re familiar with this bolt head. I just realized that he hasn’t been on my blog yet!
Tiny Robot was inspired a bit by Bender from Futurama, as you might have guessed. I love the photo of him and his friend that Brandi Simons took for my book—it’s one of my favorites!
And now there is a new robot in town! Meet Tiny Robot 2.0.
This bot’s specialty is his arm extension feature, which lets him do lots of hugging and shoplifting. I’m making a bunch of this new model to incorporate into my next installation! It’s going to be unveiled on November 3rd at gallery hanahou in NYC. More info on that soon!
We’ll resume the caption contests next Friday!
