Looks like it was made by a certain Mr Wallace. LOL.

Are you sure you had permission to use the bracelet... ?

:-) Tom Draco Noir Taylor replies: "Thanks Dave! High praise indeed- we are huge Wallace and Grommet fans! And as for permission for the bracelet- is not getting caught the same as permission? I mean, she didn’t exactly SAY I couldn’t make a bot out of her bracelet.1"

Oh I love him. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could train him to serve breakfast in bed. 12

UtiliBot is adorable! A very clever construction.

:-) Tom Draco Noir Taylor replies: "Thanks AJ! My wife is not entirely sure she should encourage my new hobby of junk-craft or not. Nothing makes it to the rubbish bin now without close scrutiny for its potential to be a cyborg, strange alien etc. Actually, I think she now looks for things too!1"

Very good! The robot blends in perfectly to the background.

:-) Tom Draco Noir Taylor replies: "Thanks Per. I can’t hope to equal the quality of your models , but it is great fun to make them. You are a real inspiration1"

I am just incredible impressed with your artwork. Your fantasy art is great, but did not notice the sci fi art, especially your backgrounds are very eyecatching. Also did you seriously say that the robots in your work are sculptures of waterbottles and beads, etc?! I cannot believe how realistic they look. Would never guess they are made out of junk.
P.S. How is your eye problem. Hope you are well. Would never guess that you had eye trouble with the work you put out. I am very impressed with your ability after having a retina infection.

:-) Tom Draco Noir Taylor replies: "Why thanks so much. I am glad you like it. I love to do things like that. As for the eye they are ok I did get an new eyeglasses perscription that is better now.
fortunately a good imagination and close up work is not hindered by a blind spot to badly.
Thanks again."

:-) Tom Draco Noir Taylor replies: "Thanks, JB!"
