Jungleboy Transparent

Quick snap of ThinBot from Barbot 2013

One of the upgrades I finished in time for BarBot: Automatic! 2013 was the artwork for the pump-mounting panels on ThinBot. This was done by trimming the panels to the right height, then masking each panel with adhesive vinyl (Cut on the CNC vinyl cutter at TechShop SJ) and sandblasting. The result looks like a fusion of white milk glass and shiny metal. I'm very happy with it.

The design is based on a motif from a Art Deco font I found, re-drafted to have proper symmetry and sharp edges. You'll notice the pump numbers are part of the design, as well.
