About

I'm a scifi junkie with a passion for artistic creation in the workshop.

I've always had a keen interest in taking things apart to discover their internal workings.
Over the years I've gained a fairly extensive knowledge of "workshop handiness".
This Etsy shop ultimately started with an empty mustard tin one day. I began to attach old discarded and random pieces to the tin, and before long the tin turned into an old school looking robot with a personality. It reminded me of the old scifi B movies you would see on the television as a kid. Once the robot was complete, I gave him a name (ColmanBot) and a little write-up of his hobbies and part time occupation. This lead me to the creation of a website with a scifi story-line where a futuristic character was scouring the earth looking for more antiques and relics to create more robots. This character was and still is creating an army of robots that were going save the planet from space pirates. I called this website SeekRbots. As each robot is built, I find myself getting more elaborate with the designs. Practice makes perfect they say. Hunting down antiques at the different flea markets is akin to treasure hunting. You just never know what you'll find. Piecing all the parts together proves to be a big challenge on occasion as they were never meant to be used in such a way. I blog about the process and the scifi story-line at www.seekrbots.ca
Looking forward to the future, I see more items from this business selling on my Etsy store including Art Prints of the Robots, Graphic Art T-Shirts of the Robotic characters, left over antique vintage pieces if I have duplicates from my treasure hunts, as well eventually selling the different one of a kind robots.
