News Flash(es)

Wooohoo!  For those of you who have grown frustrated scanning the ironically labeled “Available Fobots” gallery on www.ifobot.com and seeing nothing but evil (well, evil for you but GREAT for me) red “SOLD” signs next to all the pictures, your wait is over!  I have FINALLY uploaded 48–count’em–48 new pages to the site!  That’s 44 bots and 11 necklaces.  And most of them are still actually available!  I say mostly, because four have sold already.  Maybe more by the time you read this, but hey!  The point is, I finally did it.  And now I can return to the Fobotorium with a clean conscience.90-91_WWC1109-2-2

And speaking of the Fobotorium–you may recall that several months ago, the magazine “Where Women Create” stopped by to take a few pictures.   If you’ve ever been curious to see the place where Fobots are born, as you’ve never seen it before (i.e., clean) now’s your chance.  The Winter edition features 8 smokin’ pages of bots, bots, and more bots.  And my studio.  And my dog.  Oh, and some other artists.  And their awesome workspaces.  If you’d like to get a copy, I believe Barnes & Noble and Borders have them.  Unless you’re a close friend or relative  of mine, in which case don’t look, you’re getting one for Christmas.

    Amy, just read your article in Where Women Create and have fallen in love with your Fobots! You have a wonderful life – eat breakfast, go to your “room” and have fun creating what you love! They are just the cutest and I can see how you think about each one and what they are constructed from. The ObamaBot was hilarious! I receive tip money in my line of work…..every coin will now be hoarded for a future purchase of one of your ‘bots. Good luck with your future creations!

      Thanks for all the kind words, Anita. And I didn’t mean to imply that I have breakfast at the Waffle House EVERY DAY. My god, if I did, I’d weigh 300 pounds! As for saving up for a bot,—hey, I’ve done the tip thing, and I know what you mean. Of course, a Fobot calendar lets you have 12 (paper) bots for just $14…..

    Hi Amy, Just wanted to tell you that I was at the Bethesda show and loved your fobots but didn’t buy but am very interested. I just got my new Anthropologie catalog and saw the wonderful spread on your work. Congratulations! Should i check there or at Wake Up Little Susie or you directly?
    Thanks, Sarah

      Hey Sarah–thanks. Anthropologie sold the ones in their catalog almost immediately, and I don’t know when they’ll be putting more up on their website. They have some, I just don’t know when, or if they’re in their stores. Wake Up Little Susie hasn’t ordered for a while, so I really don’t know what, if anything, they have in stock. Or, you can order directly from me–go to the “Available” gallery on my website– http://www.ifobot.com –and tell me what you want—Amy
