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.

    Ah, the best laid schemes... We dined betwixt earth and sky enfolded by clouds. No overlord's view informs the next sandbox city plan.

    Less rain this morning, so I pore over our maps plotting our sortie into the blustery day with grand engineering plans.

    Rain pelts my city and the towering spires melt into island mounds. Tomorrow I shall simply launch my fleet of motorboats! Tonka Marine Hauler
