Fobots Massing for Invasion

That’s what it looks like, doesn’t it?  And this is only about half of the invading force that will be storming (ooh, no, don’t say storming…) Des Moines, Iowa on Friday, June 23.  Yes, we’ll be appearing at the Des Moines Arts Festival June 23-25, before driving to Colorado, hanging with all our old Colorado buddies (hi, Jan!), and then doing the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver from July 2-5.  And then, a looooooong drive home–lucky we have a new Fo-Bo-Mo-Bile, but that’s the subject for another post.  Stay tuned…

So, what do your new Fobot overlords have planned for you after the invasion?  For starters; mandatory recycling (with violations punishable by flogging), the return of “Battlebots” on Comedy Central, and “Domo Arigoto, Mr. Roboto” will be the new national anthem.

OK, Raleigh, now’s your chance.  After the article on the Fobots came out in the Raleigh News and Observer, quite a few people asked me why I didn’t do any art fairs close to home.  I mean, the nearest show on our schedule this year was in Reston, VA, about a 4 1/2 hour drive away. (Side note–you know your life has drastically changed, when a year ago you were cringing and whining about driving to Chapel hill, a half hour away, and you now consider Reston “practically next door”.)  But Cameron Village shopping center is having an event on Thursday, June 17, fom 5-8, that is kind of a sidewalk sale/trunk show/art fair/gallery opening.  I don’t know how better to describe it, except to say that the Fobots will be outside of Soho, a women’s clothing boutique where I have done some serious credit card damage in the past.  Advantages: I don’t have to put up the tent, it’s less than a mile from home, and it’s the perfect opportunity for friends and neighbors to stop by and see what I’ve been up to.  And what about a dozen other artists have been up to.  Plus food and entertainment.  You don’t even have to buy anything, just come and say hello.  And if you DO buy something, there’s this red and black sundress at Soho with my name on it…
