PEZBOT: As everyone's Robot this week has been so creative, and fun to see. I tried to do something different from my usual pieces. My original idea was to build a robot, which I did from an Altoid tin for the body. I used 2 Pez dispensers which I broke apart and used the insides for arms and outside for legs. I even used the springs for the insides. The embellishments are buttons, washers, grommets, and misc. found objects. I sprayed the base bot with chrome paint. He didn't quite meet my expectations and of course I couldn't scan. So I'm submitting my drawing of him instead.

Hey, this is cute and well thought out. Silly me I saw your previous work before and didn't know it was you. I like it. I've put a new blog here, which is basically the same as Dilettanti on Xanga.

Did you really make one out of an altoid tin? I saw a show once about a guy who made ham radios in altoid tins.

All of your robots rock.
