Robyn The Great and Her Art-O-Mat Video
Robayre, whom I meet sometime ago online, in a group called Create-A-Day, which is now EveryDayCreate, is one of the most inspiring artists I know. Not only is she prolific, her interests are all over the map, truly someone I can relate to. She is creative, and talented, and she blogs like a mad woman. I wish I had the time to accomplish a tenth of what she does. I think she is an idea collector, like me, so she always has something she has found out about that she will share with other artists, and I would love to participate in all of this cool groups. One of the ones I strive to be a part of SOON, is Art-O-Mat. I blogged about it here.
I love the whole concept behind Art-O-Mat, not to mention their trademarked phrase "Kerplunking Culture Since 1997". I can't think of a better thing to do with old cigarette machines, then to dispense miniature works of art. Robyn has been making these works for a long time now. She even came up with her own method of making mini stretch canvases to create her original paintings, which are inspired by her collages, on. She was recently named the artist of the month! That is pretty great since there are 400 artists in 10 countries working with Art-O-Mat.
Now, if all this was not cool enough, or I should say if Robyn were not already cool enough, she went and made a video about Art-O-Mat! I am totally in awe. It is soooooo fun and perfectly explains what you can expect when you pull the lever on a Art-O-Mat machine. Check it out! And thanks to Robayre, for letting me feature it here.
