80's Mix Tape Robot
Danny Caldwell, (a friend that I worked with on Nickelodeon's U-Pick Live) sent me a message and told me that he was opening up a robot themed art gallery called Zero Uno Zero Robotics. He asked if I would be interested in submitting some work to the gallery. He also said that I could submit designs that could be used on various products as well.
The idea sounded really interesting. So, I responded by saying I would immediately get my gears turning, and see what kinds of robots I could produce.
I knew that other artists would probably submit your standard retro metal toy robot circa 1950s... But I thought, why not take that concept one step further by creating a graphic that was a little more hip and that could be printed on various types of products. Thus, I decided to bring the old metal toy robot from the 1950s into the 1980s.
The 80's Mix Tape Robot was born!!! Complete with a mix tape and his lighter, this little guy is ready rock out to any retro mix that you have spinning or playing on your MP3 player.
