Hey there! I'm Matt Sauter, and I do a bunch of things. Especially when "things" involve design, illustration, and retouching. But I'm also an amateur philanthropist, wannabe voice actor, and cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. I tweet a lot, usually at http://www.twitter.com/SomePoorSchmuck.
Adoptabots by Brian Marshall
Brian Marshall is a Delaware based middle school teacher with one of the coolest hobbies ever. Using found objects, he dreams and builds "Adoptabots".
This isn't even close to all of them. Brian has an extensive body of work, so be sure to check out his flickr for more creations.
"For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for building things. Legos and Lincoln Logs occupied my time as a youngster, but as I grew older and my construction techniques progressed, I sought out new and unusual materials that would allow my imagination to run wild. Then, one lazy afternoon while watching movies I was inspired by an unusual lamp and my artistic career was born. Lamps led to clocks, small tables, chandeliers and my first attempt at robots."
"Soon, my basement became a place where all the unwanted, used up parts from commercial enterprises and residential homes could now come to find hope. This was when I created the world’s first robot orphanage. These parts refused to give up on life just because they were being discarded. So with a little help from myself, these parts were coming together with new and unusual friends to fulfill their dreams of once again bringing joys to others."
A variety of Adoptabots are available for purchase on Brian's Etsy page.
