New Collaboration with Dot

Here is a sneak peak of our new collaboration piece called " Steampunk Showdown". Chris did the bot and Dot did the boy. These were made for a Doll Street Dreamer's challenge to be displayed at AFIC the last weekend of this month. This is "Bot vs. Boy". Stay tune for more pictures and information on how you can see this and other of Chris' bots very soon.

Chris has been working on many new items for Artistic Figures in Cloth where he is going to be having a vendor's table. As cute as his pieces are in person, you really can't imagine the impact of the glass vacuum tubes made into robot shapes. If you read SpeedieBeadie then you know we are so addicted to thrift stores and flea markets. Chris & I walk through the aisle each of us on the look out for something that can inspire us. Or sometimes, Chris will just bite the bullet and go through some of the many boxes of things we accumulated. Winter weather did that last week fooling us with some Spring weather and then snow & just yesterday..even more snow. Chris found an old lamp in a box along with a bag of old Christmas lights. He sat down & came up with this rocket that actually lights up. He got me to sit down and draw up a pattern for a new doll that could ride the rocket. Then once again into his stash, and he found the perfect item for the astronaut's helmet. So here is the one, the only...ROCKET MAN

New piece and AFIC

Chris has felt well after a very long recovery from the surgery he had back in November. He has finally decided to get back down into our Art Cave, turn on the lights over his desk, go through the boxes of items he has, and create a new Radiobot. This one is called Robotronix. He is 19 inches tall which is the biggest Bot that Chris has created.

Chris is going to manning our vendor booth at AFIC the last weekend in April. He is going to have some of his Radiobots for sale along with beaded creations of mine. Together we are DC Designs. Please come check us out and maybe one of Chris' little RadioBots might want to come home with you.
