RE-BOTS are created from old and discarded items that no one wants anymore. I’ve always enjoyed creating things and finding new uses for items they were never intended for. Old, broken, and discarded items are given new lives.
While all the Re-Bots have been adopted by fine citizens in multiple states (and countries), you can always get a print on that empty wall. Look below your bot of choice and follow the link. You can also contact me about commissioned pieces!
