Upcycled Electronics and Artwork with a Twist

My shop actually originated on E-Bay under the name of Shankalonian Galleries, where I sold small prints of my artwork. I was told about Etsy from a friend who absolutely loved the site and said that I would fit right in. So, in 2010, I opened my first actual online store front on Etsy!

I started selling my warped and twisted graphic art prints at first. Then, about a year after opening my shop, I was given 2 dead laptops from a colleague at work who was cleaning out her garage and asked if I could do something with them. Thus, the first bionic butterflies were born! As an experiment, I started a section in my shop called Shankalonian Labs. Once I started selling my new creations on here and in a few art shows, I soon found out that I knew a LOT of people with old computers that they had no idea what to do with! And, it cost money to recycle them. So, since I work with a lot of environmentally friendly individuals, I ended up with a LOT of dead computers!!!! Thus far, I have completely used up an equivalent of 3 whole computer towers and 2 laptops and I have many, many more to go! It is absolutely true that one man's trash can be another man's treasure, or business venture!

Thanks for checking out my shop and have a blessed day!
