I love wielding a tiny lightning bolt to melt metal. I love making making things that last. My robots are very dear to me, they cheer me up whenever I create one. My Astrobots are anything but the stoic persona of robots of the fifties; I push to emulate emotion through form, body-language, the choice of parts. My most recent Astrobots sport lots and lots of silicon-bronze weld-deposits, as rivets.
I’m particularly proud of my Proteus-Class Astrobots: oversized solid steel action-figures. No less than seven meticulously hand-welded ball and socket joints (as well as four brass-capped hinge joints) allow for life-like motion. No tools are necessary for posing. Skunkadelic Proteus-Class Astrobots are born to be played with: pose them any way you like, then get their center of gravity balanced by adjusting the ankle joints.
When it comes to defending your outpost, insist on nothing less than Skunkadelic Rayguns! These incredibly stalwart and hefty space rifles and pistols are in stock and ready for action (once charged at any class C spaceport possessing a class C alpha particle plasma-based firearm regeneration station). Fantastic for intergalactic poker games and costume parties on Betelgeuse. Settings range from a tap on the shoulder to obliterating an inbound asteroid from fifteen meters. Watch out for the kick.
Skunkadelia Rocketships: Because Being in a Vacuum Sucks!
These carefully welded steel space vessels are sturdy enough to withstand heavy bombardment from asteroids and pirate attacks. My smallest ones are made from two spent CO2 cartridges.
People tell me it’s easy to tell that I absolutely love making this art. I hope you find my work as enjoyable as I do.
