Pioneers from Beyond: Artist Statement
My current body of work illustrates a fictional series of events and interactions between various extraterrestrials and settlers of the Western United States. I have always been a bit of a storyteller, and as I draw in my sketchbooks to create the concepts for my paintings, I am slowly building and expanding on a western fantasy world. Much like a medieval setting with tales of elves and fairies, my imaginary landscape is that of the southwest desert where UFO’s hover on the horizons and aliens eat gold. And much like the mischievous and even malevolent nature of elves in fairy stories, the extraterrestrials in my paintings often have sinister motives.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
