Printer to Chocolate

There have been a few reasons to celebrate lately around BHiveLabs of late, first of all Matthew and his wife have recently had their second child, and secondly a friend got married. To help celebrate, and to try and expand my skill set a little bit I thought I would try and make some chocolates to give out as gifts.

Friends in Leeds

A friend of mine is setting up a screen printing co-operative with some other artists in Leeds. The new space is opening on the 14th of October, and we thought that in order to help them out we would send them a sign.

They also have an indiegogo campaign to help with setting up the space https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-us-launch-leeds-print-workshop#/ , if you are interested or feeling generous pop across to have a look.


Giant Robot

A friend saw one of our Robot Mk8 keyring holders and wanted a scaled up version so I made one 4 times taller. I didn't bother rescaling the fit parameters of the arms, legs and neck so the joint are pretty loose but he still stands up fine and is still semi poseable. Everyone who sees it wants one now and I can't let my toddler see them or he'd want to keep them all.

Mini Robot Army

As an extra bonus he also made the feet compatible with lego (one of Matthew and his son's favourite toys).Read more
